Yellowstone National Park is soliciting comments for a proposed project to do routine rehabilitation trail work on a portion of the Boundary Creek Trail in the southwest corner of the park.  The project would primarily focus on the section of trail near Dunanda Falls and would take place during the summer of 2007.  

The main intent of the project will be to reduce erosion.  This will be accomplished with the construction of a series of drains designed to channel surface water off the trail.  Additionally, a system of check dams will be placed on the trail.  These structures will have the purpose of retaining water flow and tread material.  The project would be done by National Park Service staff in partnership with the Montana Conservation Corps.  Funding for the project is being considered through Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources Recreational Trails Program.  

Written comments should be mailed to: Bill Hopkins, Backcountry Trails Office, P.O. Box 168, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, 82190, and received no later than October 31, 2006.
