FAMB Encourages Comments in Favor of the Strawberry Butte Frontcountry Trail Management Project Near Helena
The Forest Service is looking at taking on the Strawberry Butte Frontcountry Trail Management Project. This is a trail system southeast of Helena that needs better management. Most of the trails are unofficial. The project would make about 28 miles of trail "official" and would build another 11 miles of new trail to improve the network.
Suggestions for your comments:
-There is long-standing use in this area, and managing it in a constructive way is a good move.
-Managing the trails for mountain bike use is important to me.
-This will help disperse use from the Helena South Hills.
-Doing this project under a categorical exclusion makes sense.
