Document Description
The Scotts Flat Lower Connector Trail Project (Proposed Project or Project) will enhance public safety and recreational opportunities on District lands by constructing a 1.4-mile pedestrian trail that will provide hikers and bikers with a means to safely cross over the discharge channel below the Scotts Flat Powerhouse and Deer Creek downstream of Scotts Flat Dam Spillway, as well as providing a connection to the existing Scotts Flat Reservoir Trail (also known as the Snow Mountain Ditch Lake Trail) and Scotts Flat Trail, located on the north side of Scotts Flat Reservoir. The trail alignment will begin at the terminus of the existing Scotts Flat Reservoir Trail (just south of Scotts Flat Campground) descend approximately 0.6 mile to the crossing of the discharge channel and Deer Creek, and then ascend approximately 0.8 mile to a proposed new parking lot located off an existing unimproved road off the Dam Road (on the southern side of the reservoir). The trail will not be open to equestrian or motorized vehicle use.
