Basin Recreation

The Snyderville Basin Recreation District is unveiling a short-term trail access plan, as warmer weather arrives with the spring.

 

Recently, Basin Rec and Summit County officials have been concerned that the Basin’s world-class trail system is being loved to death. 

 

The effects have been seen as trails and parking lots in residential areas are crowded by locals, out-of-county visitors, and recreationists trying to get outside during the past year of pandemic.

 

As trail use continues to increase, Snyderville Basin Recreation Director Dana Jones outlines the new short-term trail access plan to accommodate the rise in traffic.
