KETCHUM – Repair for the Harriman trail will begin this month, and will likely continue until the beginning of November. The trail was severely damaged in three sections by above average water runoff last spring.
Repair work includes reconstruction of the Harriman Trail corridor, restoration of impacted areas and a short trail reroute just north of the North Fork Campground.
“We are committed to having the Harriman Trail up and running in its entirety for the 2017-2018 winter cross-country season, and we appreciate the patience and support of the community while work is underway,” Kirk Flannigan, area ranger for the Sawtooth NRA, said in a press release.
The Sawtooth NRA and the Blaine County Recreation District also plan to make improvements in the spring and summer of 2018 to enable full summer access for hiking, biking and equestrian use.
