Trail Repair Slated In Yellowstone

trail construction

Yellowstone National Park is soliciting comments for a proposed project to complete routine trail work on portions of the Heart Lake and Basin Creek Cutoff trails.  The project will focus on the area where the two trails connect to the portion of the Heart Lake Trail that skirts Sheridan Lake.  The main intent of the project will be to avoid areas flooded by recent beaver colonization in the area.  This will be achieved by rerouting the trail away from dammed areas of creeks, and will necessitate the construction of a new trail section approximately 2.5 miles long.  Additionally, crews will install a system of drains and retainers on the trail.  The project would be completed by National Park Service staff in partnership with the Montana Conservation Corps.
