<strong>LOGAN—</strong> On the edges of Cache Valley are gateways to mystique, beauty, and adventure – the Uinta, Wasatch, and Cache National Forests. Saturday, June 23, is National Adopt a Trail Day’s 20th anniversary and the Logan Ranger District of the United States Forest Service (USFS) is hosting an Adopt-A-Trail Kick-off in celebration.
The event will be part of the biggest “trailgaiting” party in America, and its goal is to ensure trails are safe for hiking, biking, and for all to enjoy.
National Trails Day will begin in the Spring Hallow campground, about four miles up Logan Canyon, at 9 a.m.and last until 2 p.m. The activity is family and pet friendly, and participants will be trained by district trail crews on general trail maintenance.
“Even though it will be a day of work, you should plan on a day of fun in the woods,” said Lisa Thompson, the Volunteer and Partnership Coordinator.
Thompson said to dress for work and bring gloves, sunscreen, lunch and lots of water. There will also be a raffle held.
The Logan and Ogden Ranger districts cover approximately 339 miles of trail.
“I’ve been a part of the team 3 years in August and this program (Adopt-A-Trail) is something we are reintroducing,” Thompson said. “There has been a great response in the Logan District and I see the program becoming very successful.”
