Saturday is National Trails Day and the Logan Ranger District of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is looking for volunteers to help restore one specific trail in Logan Canyon. According to the forest service, volunteers are needed to help re-route the upper meadow section of the trail to mitigate erosion.

“Volunteers will reconstruct a new section of trail, as well as rehabilitating and closing the old, eroded section,” a press release states.

Those who would like to help are asked to meet at the Jardine Juniper trailhead parking lot near Wood Camp campground at 9 a.m. The project site is approximately an hour hike away.

“Volunteers will be hiking and carrying tools to the project site. Volunteers are required to wear long pants, long sleeve shirts, sturdy footwear, gloves and eyewear,” the release continues. “Some tools will be provided, but individuals are encouraged to bring their own shovels, rakes, water, lunch and snacks.”

Depending on how many volunteers show up, the project is expected to be completed by 1 p.m.

For questions, or more information about the project, contact Lisa Thompson at the Logan Ranger District at (801) 625-5850.
