Volunteers Brave Wind, Rain For Temple Fork Trail Work

WASATCH-CACHE NATIONAL FOREST — While National Public Lands Day has since passed us by, we are still getting word of some amazing volunteer projects that were completed.

One such project took place up in Logan Canyon at the Temple Fork Trailhead. Here, volunteers from multiple organizations braved the wet and rainy weather to show their commitment to Utah’s outdoor trails.

The organizations involved included members from Wasatch Outlaw Wheelers, Public Lands Equal Access Alliance, Big Horn 4×4, Utah Conservation Corps, and Sand Rock Ridge Riders.

Volunteers split up their efforts into reinforcing portions of the trailhead, as well as assisting U.S. Forest Service staff with installing signage along the Worm Fence Trail.

Representatives from WOW, who are also certified trail hosts through the Utah State Parks OHV Program, handed out brochures to the public. A BBQ lunch was also provided by one of the volunteers.

Earlier in the year, members of both WOW and PLEAA had also completed some trail work in the area; including a buck-and-rail fence and a bridge crossing over Spawn Creek.

This volunteer opportunity was made possible through funding and partnership with the Utah BLM, U.S. Forest Service, and Division of Parks and Recreation OHV Program. Utah State Parks would also like to offer special thanks to the Logan/Ogden Ranger District.

Curious about upcoming volunteer projects or want to learn more? Contact the OHV Program for more information by emailing ohveducation@utah.gov.
