Trail Maintenance Days - Logan Ranger District

The Logan Ranger District of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest invites the community to join us for the Bunchgrass Trail re-route projects.  Volunteers are invited to participate on one or all of the scheduled days.  Come join in the fun, exercise, meet new people as well as give back to the local community! 

This is the most intensive trails project taking place on the Logan Ranger District this summer. Approximately 2 miles of trail will be rerouted. These reroutes will take place in two locations. A lower reroute will connect the existing trail to the Tony Grove Winter Trailhead. This lower reroute will include the construction of a bridge, the installation of a cattle guard, and some fencing work. The upper reroute will take place approximately 2 miles from the existing trailhead. This reroute will include a bridge installation, as well as over a mile of rerouted trail. Volunteers should be prepared to work at either site.

Volunteers are required to wear long sleeves, long pants, and boots or closed toed shoes, eye protection, sun screen and bring lots of water.

Meet at the Tony Grove Winter Trailhead in Logan Canyon.

For more information and to RSVP, please contact Lisa Thompson, Volunteer and Partnership Coordinator, Logan Ranger District, (801) 458-1704
