A group of volunteers gathered at an old historic Forest Service Ranger Station for National Trails Day Saturday. The site was the Belknap Ranger Station and is located on the access road at Fremont Indian State Park just off Interstate 70, some 24 miles southwest of Richfield.
The old station was built around 1915 and served in the early management of the Phavant and Tushar mountain ranges. The project included the installation of interpretive signs, pathways, metal horses, corral fencing, a bridge and more in telling the story of the forest ranger’s life in a remote mountain location.
More than 40 people from the Paiute Trail Committee, the Sevier Valley OHV Club, the Tushar Mountain OHV Club, the Sand Rock Ridge Riders, Utah State Parks/Fremont Indian State Park and the forest service volunteered to help with the project.
