Wilderness Stewardship Project at Butler Fork Trailhead - Part 2!

Written by

Fall is finally here! We had an incredible day up the Butler Fork trailhead with cooler temps and sunny aspens. With fresh moose tracks and the sounds of rustling leaves, our small, but mighty crew of four, had a very successful work day. 

With the rich riparian zone that lines the Butler Fork trail, the maples, willows, and wildflowers have taken over the existing trail. We spent the day removing most of this overgrowth to provide a more enjoyable hiking experience for those in the future. We also widened the trail in some areas to allow for more footing and to recreate a trail that has integrity. 

The Butler Fork trailhead has been a huge project for the Salt Lake Ranger District (SLRD). They have spent a large portion of their 2021 season reworking this heavily used trail and it looks amazing! In July, we were able to join them on a lower portion of the trail that needed a lot of reshaping and learn more about the overall goals of the area. Ultimately, the SLRD strives to build a stronger Wasatch for all of us to enjoy just like we do at Save Our Canyons. 

Thank you hugely to Thomas, Laurie, Drew, and Peter for all your hard work today! Even though our crew was smaller, I am so blown away by all we accomplished.
