Help Build Trails at Milltown State Park for National Trails Day
-Saturday, June 6 from 11am to 3pm-
Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) invites the public to celebrate National Trails Day at Milltown State Park on Saturday, June 6 from 11am to 3pm.
Trail work is afoot at the Milltown State Park where Montana State Park staff and volunteers will help with trail construction of the Floodplain Loop in participation of National Trails Day. The Floodplain Loop makes up one segment of the proposed trail network at Milltown State Park. The trail system will connect the overlook to an existing rail grade and blend recreation with interpretation of the area’s natural and cultural history, river ecology and restoration.
