The restoration had four main goals:

1. restore over six acres of native riparian vegetation. This includes planting alders, ash, hawthorns, willows, and numerous native shrubs.

2. improve nearly three and a half miles of trails: relocating, grading, improving drainage, and building footbridges and split-rail fences. This also has included getting vehicles out of the immediate stream corridor by relocating parking areas and providing signage to educate and direct visitors.

3. Place large woody debris in the stream to restore habitat for plants, insects, and fish.

4. Restore trout populations from the current two thousand to five thousand fish per mile.
