CRATER LAKE — Some backcountry trails at Crater Lake National Park that were originally built as fire access roads may be either rehabilitated or relocated.
Chief ranger David Brennan said the park has prepared an environmental assessment for the work and is seeking public comments, which will be accepted through July 7.
Brennan said the rehabilitation project was proposed in 1997. Two small trail sections were completed in 2000.
As part of the project, park staff will attempt to decrease the road-like appearance by various trail maintenance, relocation and revegetation methods.
Trails being considered under the environmental assessment include the Pacific Crest, Union Peak and Annie Springs trails.
The assessment can be viewed at the park’s Web site at www.nps.gov/crla/trailsea.htm. Copies are also available for review at the park and public libraries, including Klamath Falls and Chiloquin.
