Volunteers Needed to Work for Slaughterhouse and Forbidden Fruit Trails
Saturday, October 16, 2021


The Wood River Trails Coalition is seeking volunteers to help hand-finish the new Slaughterhouse Canyon trail near Bellevue today.

Workers are sought to help rake rock, fine tune tread surface, clear sagebrush from the edge, widen the corridor and seed the backslope from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today—Saturday, Oct. 16—in Slaughterhouse Canyon behind O’Donnell Park in Bellevue.

Volunteeers should look for the WRTC flags. It’s a short easy walk of less than a quarter mile to the project site from O’Donnell Park.

This is the first trail the Bureau of Land Management has built as part of its quest to build 81 miles of new trails in the south valley. The trails are outlined in the Wood River Recreation and Access Environment Assessment.

To date, the trail encompasses three miles of a 5-mile trail singletrack loop trail. It will be open to electric bikes, traditional mountain bikes, hikers and horseback riders beginning next spring


The Wood River Trails Coalition will hold a volunteer workday at Forbidden Fruit in Adam’s Gulch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23.

Volunteers will help fine-tune a new mile of new flow trail there, rake berms and compact the soil for next season.

The trail is four miles from the Adam’s Gulch Trailhead with 1,000 feet of elevation gain. Register at
