AMERICAN FORK CANYON Wet conditions have led Uinta National Forest officials to temporarily close three trails in the north fork of American Fork Canyon.
Sections of Mill Canyon, Mud Springs and Tibble Fork trails are located in wet meadows and bogs. The closures are needed to reduce damage, avoid new shortcuts and minimize sediment into nearby streams, forest officials said.
The multiple-use trails are expected to be open by mid-July.
Many national forest trails were once stock or game trails that evolved over time. Because they existed and were being used by people, many were adopted into the trail system.
"In the future, we will be looking to relocate some trail sections to drier ground," "Some trails are not in good locations from a resource-protection standpoint said Pam Gardner, Pleasant Grove district ranger.
