Members of the Backcountry Hunters & Anglers in the Cody region recently got together to complete 4 miles of trail clearing!
BHA members met at the Little Sunlight trail head on the morning of May 21st. The trail which follows little sunlight creek had areas of blow down timber and dead fall which completely blocked the trail in numerous places. The group of 8 cleared 32 trees off the trail using hand saws, and cross cut buck saws. After the trail clearing the group got together to share a meal and catch up with one another over a very welcome camp fire after a chilly day.
This was the third season that BHA has done a trail clearing at the little sunlight trail. Bruce Fauksee worked with the forest service to coordinate the event as well as have a sign made and hung at the trailhead, recognizing BHA's efforts on the little sunlight trail.
This trail is used for accessing the backcountry and having the trail cleared benefits hunters, hikers, backpackers, trail riders and many other users. Thank you to Kayla Nagle and Megan McLean, BHA Board Members, to Bruce Fauskee, and to all of our partners and participants for making this possible.
