Bitterroot Forest Projects Planned for National Trails Day
National Trails Day was started by the American Hiking Society to encourage people to find their favorite trail.
Over the years, it has become a day of volunteer work on trails throughout the country. Saturday, June 4, will see two projects on the Bitterroot National Forest and a trail building class on the Lolo National Forest, according to Tod McKay, BNF Public Affairs Officer.
McKay said the work is planned Saturday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Trail users should be aware of the projects. He said this is the tenth year for the forest partnership projects on National Trails Day. The forest has over 1,500 miles of trails. Over 100 miles of trails have already been cleared this spring.
