Public Review of EA

The public is invited to comment on a proposal for repair and reroute of a portion of the lower Thunder Creek Trail, relocation of a hiker camp, and creation of an administrative camp along the trail. The entire project is proposed within the Stephen Mather Wilderness. The purpose of this action is to minimize the impacts of hiker and stock use along the trail, thereby preserving the character of the designated wilderness.

Per the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act, the environmental impacts of the proposed project and a no action alternative have been analyzed through an Environmental Assessment (EA) to help determine whether the National Park Service should carry out the proposed action.

All comments on the EA are welcome, particularly those that assess the adequacy of the document in disclosing and evaluating the effects on the environment or identify mitigation to the proposed action.
