Members of Lander Cycling, the Montana Conservation Corps and other volunteers removed loose rock and brush that had grown over the trail from the popular Johnny On Top Trail.
BLM Lander Recreation Technician Brandon Thielke thanked all the volunteers for participating in this worthy project. "The improvements made at Johnny Behind the Rocks on National Public Lands Day will make this trail safer and more enjoyable for hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders," Thielke said. “I’m so appreciative of the volunteers who came out and showed pride for their public lands.”
The NPLD workday built on improvement projects the BLM, Lander Cycling and other volunteers have completed over the past few years.
NPLD is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy.
