Document Description
CDPR has awarded state funds to the Eldorado National Forest for the construction of a bridge on the Barrett Lake 4WD Trail and the reroute of the existing trail to connect with the new bridge. A 45 to 50' wood and steel bridge would be built to span the Jones Fork of Silver Creek, replacing the current wet creek crossing (where vehicles drive through the creek). ~0.5 miles of new trail would be constructed to connect the bridge with the existing trail alignment. Most of the new trail and the bridge would be located on granite outcroppings to minimize vegetation disturbance. The project purpose is to reduce sediment delivery to the creek while still providing for a high quality motorized trail experience. The project would also restore 0.4 mile of trail to be abandoned and create a 2-3 car parking area in a disturbed area south of the creek.
