I need some advise on solving an erosion problem on a small creek crossing. A friend and I and his back hoe dug a crossing down to a small creek so I can get my atv down it and across the small creek. The creek is about 7 feet below the surrounding surface and the crossing is about 12 yards long. So it's rather steep. The problem is that any rain wants to erode the crossing road to the point that my atv falls in and gets trapped. (see insert). The erosion gets at least knee deep, and can't be avoided. It gets deeper over the winter and spring. I don't see a way to get a dump truck down to it due to the limited road width I have legal access to. The top soil is sandy with a loam under it. Any advise would be very appreciated. Thanks
