Trail Work is Scheduled at Bass Creek

Work to minimize erosion on the Bass Creek Trail will be ongoing through the month of May, according to the Bitterroot National Forest.

The project is continuing rehabilitation work as part of last year’s logging operation by Pyramid Mountain Lumber of Seeley Lake, according to Tod McKay of the Bitterroot National Forest.

Crews will be using a small excavator to dig in over 70 “water bars,” which divert water off the trails.

The good news is that the popular area will not be closed during the project. Instead, crews will post signs and temporarily block trail sections where work is being done.

Stevensville Ranger Dan Ritter said, “In order for us to keep the trails open … we really need people to cooperate, be flexible, and avoid areas where our crews and equipment are working.”

The work will start near the Day Use Picnic area and all the water bars will be installed by June 1.

If you need more information, call the Stevensville Ranger District at (406) 777-5461.
