Renovated trails for Indian Creek

Climbing sites in Indian Creek and Donally Canyon in Utah are among the most famous in the American West. Due to its popularity with both climbers and hikers, erosion, which threatens the endemic flora, has been caused by the heavy footfall in the area.

In 2016, in five days, volunteers from the Rocky Mountain Field Institute rebuilt a 400-meter-long trail that winds over 100 meters of uneven terrain. They faced a number of challenges: to cross a particularly steep section of the trail, they had to construct 76 steps, stone by stone, without mechanical assistance. 450 meters of ‘unofficial’ trails were rendered unusable by blocking access or replanting vegetation.
Climbers will now be able to use the ‘official’ environmentally friendly trail, to reach the "Supercrack", which ranks among the most famous cracks in the world.
