Work to continue through October
By Summit Voice
SUMMIT COUNTY — Leaf-viewing along some favorite local trails will be affected by ongoing logging, as the U.S. Forest Service works to clear potentially dangerous trees through the rest of September and most of October.
The tree-felling is scheduled to start Monday (Sept. 26) along North Ten Mile Trail (FST #37), Spruce Creek Trail (FDT #58), McCullough Gulch Trail (FDT#851), Quandary Mountain Trail (FDT #47), and The Colorado Trail (FDT #2108.3) from the Middle fork of the Swan to Georgia Pass.
“There are no plans to close the trails to public use at this time,” said Dillon District Ranger Jan Cutts. “However, delays should be expected on these trails until the work is complete. The crew will post trail-guards who will stop the public until it is safe to pass through the cutting area. The goal for the project is public safety. Please follow the directions of the crew members.”
Check the alerts and warnings section, near the upper righthand corner of the White River National Forest website. If you have any questions, please contact the Dillon Ranger District at 970-468-5400.
