Trails on the Sula Ranger District of the Bitterroot National Forest will be in better shape after this weekend's work by members of the Bitter Root Back Country Horsemen.

The group has been helping the forest maintain trails almost since it started - 30 years ago.

This weekend, they'll be working on the Buck Creek Trail #198 and the Johnson Peak Trail #435. Both trails connect with the Continental Divide in the Sapphire Mountain Range.

The club members will be clearing blowdown trees, cleaning water bars and ditches and making general trail repairs. They also will conduct some improvement projects at the East Fork Guard Station, which includes repairing corrals and fences, cleaning out buildings and constructing a new pump cover.
