Project Description: The action involves relocating a trail to more suitable terrain than the current trail.

The project was included in the Bog River Unit Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement, which was completed January 30, 2003. The new trail is approximately one mile in length. The project requires the cutting of 10 trees with a three inch or greater diameter at breast height. Most of the cutting will involve brush clearing and side pruning.
