Barriers to block motorized use of campsites

(Sept. 7, 2016) -- The Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest in Montana will install barriers at multiple campsites in the Little Blackfoot River drainage in an effort to mitigate impacts from motorized travel in riparian areas and near waterways.

HELENA, Mont. — The Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest will install barriers at multiple campsites in the Little Blackfoot River drainage in an effort to mitigate impacts from motorized travel in riparian areas and near waterways.

The Forest Service on Aug. 18 signed the Little Blackfoot Dispersed Site Mitigation and Restoration Project, which comes under the Divide Travel Plan signed in March.

The mitigation and restoration project calls for mitigation measures at nearly 30 sites, including the installation of rock barriers to restrict motorized use, setting designated boundaries for some sites and restoring unauthorized motorized routes and sites impacting the watershed.
