Photo by James Wilson Group to build Loyalton trail The Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, in partnership with the Tahoe National Forest and the community of Loyalton, began work April 1 on converting the historical Boca & Loyalton railroad grade to a Forest Service system trail for nonmotorized recreation. The Boca & Loyalton Railroad was said to have had the greatest effect in assisting with the growth of the economy in the Sierra Valley, running for 26 miles from the town site of Boca --(between Verdi and Truokee on Interstate 80) to Loyalton. It was constructed in 1901 and ran until 1916, hauling timber from the outer reaches of the mountains to the sawmills in Loyalton, which at the time had five mills in operation. The work will focus on restoring approximately 8 miles of the historical railroad grade to meet Forest Service specifications for a nonmotorized, shared-use trail. Specifically, the work will include clearing brush from the trail corridbr, removing root wads from the tread area, reconstructing damaged 6ections of tread, and building Ck structures and drains to armor the tread and to protect nearby Smithneck Creek from sedimentation. SBTS plans to host a volunteer workday April 19 and everyone is invited to participate. The event is open to all ages and abilities. In addition to tools and trail crew leaders, SBTS will provide beverages, breakfast bagels and a sack lunch. For additional information and to RSVP, go to Funding for this project is provided through a grant from the Sierra County Resource Advisory Committee.
