Replace Herron River and Live Trap Lake Subsistence Use Cabins
Denali National Park and Preserve (DENA) is considering a permit application for replacing two cabins used for subsistence activities within Denali National Preserve. The applicant is Dan Hytry, a local rural resident and qualified DENA subsistence user from Lake Minchumina, Alaska.
The requested cabins would replace two traditionally used trapline cabins along the Castle Rocks Trapline. Reconstruction would occur at the Herron River and Live Trap Lake cabin sites. These cabins collapsed in the 1970s, rendering them unusable. The applicant started using the traplines in the early 1990s and requested the cabins after a few years experience on those traplines. Both replacement cabins would be of the same size and type as the original cabins, and would be built near the locations of the collapsed cabins. Both cabins would be constructed of locally harvested spruce logs.
