The National Park Service (NPS) is seeking comments on an
environmental assessment for a project to improve the Streelow Creek Trail north of Orick in Humboldt County.

The trail was established on an old logging road along Streelow Creek, a tributary of Prairie Creek. Streelow Creek contains spawning habitat for anadromous salmonids. Many locations along the road are failing and have the potential to deliver sediment directly into the creek. The failing road and drainage structures need improvements to prevent sedimentation of salmon spawning habitat and to ensure that the bike-hike trail remains available for safe and enjoyable visitor use.

The Streelow Creek Trail runs between Davison Road and the Davison Trail along Prairie Creek. The trail would be closed for approximately two years beginning in September 2010. The Davison Trail will continue to be available for hikers and bicyclists.

The environmental assessment is available for review at local libraries and park offices, and on the Internet at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/REDW.
