Public Meeting to Discuss Development of the Island Unit Non-Motorized Trail System

The Swan Lake Ranger District is hosting a public meeting on December 19, 2012, to discuss implementation plans for development of the Island Unit non-motorized trail system which is documented in the 2012 Decision Notice for the Island Unit Trail Systems Additions Project. The trails that will be discussed are the Foys to Blacktail Trail and the Lakeside to Blacktail Trail.

The intent of the meeting is to lead to a collaborative trail development plan for the non-motorized trails documented in the Island Unit Trails decision. Before developing the non-motorized trail system, USFS officials feel it's important to discuss and develop with trail users and partners the trail design and management plans, as well as a development timeline. The USFS will be limiting this discussion to the two non-motorized routes and will have an open house pertaining to the motorized portion of the Island Unit Trail system at a later date.

The meeting to discuss development of the non-motorized trails in the Island Unit Trails decision is scheduled for December 19, 2012 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Flathead National Forest Supervisor’s Office located at 650 Wolfpack Way, Kalispell, MT.

If you are unable to attend the meeting and wish to participate, you can contact the office by December 31, 2012. Your knowledge and input may help with the development of the two trails.
