On April 26 Troop 202 scouts and adults rerouted a portion of the Palos Colorados Trail in Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland. The project involved blazing a new less steep trail with a width of about 4.5 feet. The old trail was blocked off with two fences, one on each end, and was covered with brush. Finally a small depression was filled with gravel and dirt.
