Led by Duff Johnson, owner of Slim and Knobby’s Bike Shop, members of the new Wasatch Trails Alliance (WTA) group recently cleaned up a pile of construction debris that was illegally dumped in Dutch Hollow of Wasatch Mountain State Park. The WTA (wasatchtrailsalliance.org) is a newly formed non-profit group for the advocacy, design, construction and maintenance of non-motorized trails in the Heber area. By joining this group you can help promote trails for the betterment of our community.
WTA would like to encourage all trail users to avoid sections of trails when they are wet and muddy. Use of the trails when in this condition results in lasting impressions in the mud, creating trip and fall hazards, and future rough terrain for all trail users. We have already experienced significant damage to the trail system at Dutch Hollow that will be evident all summer season.
For those who would like another avenue to support trails you can also join the non-profit group Friends of Wasatch Mountain State Park (friendsofwasatch.org) that helps raise funds for trails and other projects in the park. Come join both groups June 2nd on National Trails Day for the official ribbon cutting and finish trail work on the exciting “new” Prospect Trail in Dutch Hollow.
