Trail Fans Get A Grant For A Big Project

You don't have to walk far in our region to find a trail to hike.  But a well-maintained trail is another matter. 

Trails on federal land in particular are generally behind on maintenance. 

That's where groups like the Siskiyou Mountain Club come in, clearing and sprucing up trails in the backcountry.  The club recently got a big grant from the sporting goods store REI to develop a long backpacking route in the region.  SMC Executive Director Gabe Howe joins us with details.
