The Youth Trail Crew has been busy working to improve the popular Ski Lake Trail over the last 3 weeks.  They have been installing water bars and rock steps and improving the tread in areas where erosion has affected the trail.  They will be finishing up their work this week and moving to other projects so if you’re looking to take a hike high in the mountains to avoid the heat go say hi to them at Ski Lake and check out the work they have done.  The Forest Service Trail Crew has also been busy working on several reroute projects with a volunteer group from Wilderness Ventures.  They have worked on sections of trail at Ouzel Falls by the headwaters of the Gros Ventre River and rerouted the Crystal Creek Trail around the giant landslide that covered the old trail and created a lake.  The Friends of Pathways Trail Ambassadors have been out performing yearly trail maintenance on the Snow King and Teton Pass trails, digging drainage in Black Canyon, rebenching parts of the Woods Canyon, clearing trees on the Ridge Trail, and removing user created trails in the Cache Creek area.  They want to remind folks to stay off of rehabbed trails to give them a chance to grow back, and if you have any questions for them they will have the tent set up at the Flat Creek trailhead on Tuesday and at the Trail Creek trailhead on Friday morning.  Come say hi and get a map or bike bell or a dog leash.
