Olympic National Park invites interested members of the public to learn more about proposed improvement of the Spruce Railroad Trail in Olympic National Park. The trail is located along the north shore of Lake Crescent. There will be a presentation at 6:30 p.m.

Olympic National Park staff will present a range of alternatives for developing the historic Spruce Railroad grade into a non-motorized, multi-use trail from the Lyre River to the park's western boundary. Park staff will be available to answer questions and accept public comments.

Olympic National Park (ONP) has completed an environmental assessment (EA) to evaluate the effects of trail development alternatives in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), and National Park Service Management Policies.

The 2012 SRRT EA supersedes an EA released last year and includes new alternatives, including a new preferred alternative, and environmental analysis. The new SRRT EA illustrates the value of public input and addresses Important issues were raised during last year's public comment period, particularly around accessibility, safety, and visitor experience.

A new preferred alternative was developed and is fully described in the SRRT EA, along with three other action alternatives and a no-action alternative.

The 2012 Spruce Railroad Trail EA will be made available for a 30-day public review and comment period.
