Help Build Trails at Milltown State Park for National Trails Day
-Saturday, June 6 from 11am to 3pm-
Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) invites the public to celebrate National Trails Day at Milltown State Park on Saturday, June 6 from 11am to 3pm.
Trail work is afoot at the Milltown State Park where Montana State Park staff and volunteers will help with trail construction of the Floodplain Loop in participation of National Trails Day. The Floodplain Loop makes up one segment of the proposed trail network at Milltown State Park. The trail system will connect the overlook to an existing rail grade and blend recreation with interpretation of the area’s natural and cultural history, river ecology and restoration.
Montana State Parks celebrates National Trails Day at Milltown State Park on Saturday, June 7, from noon-3pm.
Meet park staff at noon at the Milltown State Park Overlook off Deer Creek Road to hear an interpretive talk, “Past, Present, and Future Pathways through Milltown State Park.” After sharing trail plans for the park, enjoy a ranger-led hike from the Overlook to the Clark Fork Floodplain. Bring a picnic lunch, sturdy shoes, and weather-appropriate hiking necessities for our trek through moderate terrain. The hike will be from 1-3pm.
A walk in the Milltown State Park is getting closer!
Attend the public meeting to see the latest designs in the initial phase of park development at 6:30 p.m. at the library of the Bonner School, 9045 Mt Highway 200 East on Wednesday, September 28.
