Yellowstone National Park Solicits Comments For Bliss Pass Trail Project


Yellowstone National Park is soliciting comments on a proposed project to do routine rehabilitation trail work on a portion of the Bliss Pass Trail in the northeast corner of the park.  The primary focus of the project would be to restore trail surface that has been damaged by erosion. This work would take place during the summer of 2009.


In addition to tread restoration, a system of drains and retainers will also be placed on the restored trail to reduce additional erosion. The entire project would consist of work in the current alignment of the trail and would not involve any new construction. The project will be directed by National Park Service staff in partnership with the Montana Conservation Corps, and is being considered for funding by the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Recreational Trails Program.


Written comments should be e-mailed to bill_hopkins@nps.gov, or mailed to Bill Hopkins, Backcountry Trails Office, P.O. Box 168, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming 82190, and received no later than June 13, 2008.
