Golden Horseshoe Trail reconstruction and road closure projects within the Swan River priority watershed

The DiIlon Ranger District of the White River National Forest is inviting public comment as part of an environmental analysis process which will evaluate the anticipated effects from proposed reconstruction and designation of several trails, in addition to closure and rehabilitation of several roads in the area known as the Golden Horseshoe and in the Swan River drainage.

"The Swan River watershed was selected as one of four priority watersheds in the White River National Forest," said Corey Lewellen, Dillon District fisheries biologist.

Selecting this priority watershed will achieve collaboration with the multiple resources that the White River National Forest is responsible for managing.

The overarching goal is to achieve significant landscape benefits to the entire watershed.
