LEGAL NOTICE OF PROPOSED ACTION Huntington Canyon Trailhead Improvements USDA Forest Service Manti-La Sal National Forest
The Ferron/Price District Ranger is proposing to improve trail
access in Huntington Canyon by constructing two trailhead parking
areas and approximately 0.5 miles of new non-motorized trail.
Improvements would take place adjacent to U31 at the mouths of Horse
Canyon and Engineer Canyon. Parking areas would be enlarged to better
accommodate demand including those towing horse trailers. Camping
would not be allowed in the trailhead parking areas.
The new non-motorized trail segment would be constructed between
Engineer Canyon and Mill Canyon. All trail construction would occur
within the reclaimed natural gas pipeline route adjacent to U31.
Additional improvements would be made at the Engineer Canyon
trailhead to perpetuate traditional dispersed camping including 150
yards of gravel road to dispersed campsites, graveled parking spurs
and fire rings. Log and block barriers would be constructed where
necessary to contain motorized use.
