Yellowstone National Park Solicits Comments
For Heart Lake Trail Project

Yellowstone National Park is soliciting comments for a proposed project to do routine trail work on part of the Heart Lake Trail. The project will focus on the portion of the trail near its junction with the South Boundary Trail. This is also the vicinity of the confluence of Red Creek and the Snake River.

The main intent of the project will be to reestablish trail tread that is prone to erosion. This will be accomplished with the construction of new erosion control devices and replacing tread. Crews will install a system of drains and retainers using both stone and timber structures. These structures will have the purpose of limiting water flow retaining tread material. Also, when necessary, ruts will be filled using rock and soil.

The project will be done by National Park Service staff in partnership with the Montana Conservation Corps. Funding for the project is being considered through Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources Recreational Trails Program.

Written comments should be received no later than October 26, 2009. Mail to: Bill Hopkins, Backcountry Trails Office, P.O. Box 168, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, 82190. Emails may be sent to bill_hopkins@nps.gov.
