Wooden Portals

Trail Thoughts and Musings

Sometimes a tree will fall across a trail that is too large to completely remove. There are two methods that the park service will use to correct the problem. The easiest way is to simply reroute the trail around the obstacle. When there is no room to reroute, a more creative means must then be found. This usually involves removing enough material to allow a hiker to pass, as can be seen here.
