Steinaker Nature Trail

Work is underway on a new nature trail at Steinaker State Park. According to Park Manager Mike Murray, crews started work on the nature trail in July and phase 1 is almost complete. “The boardwalk was condemned and taken out in March,” explains Murray. “That is where the nature trail begins and that part of the park is free to the public. It will be about a mile long and then connects into other little trail systems.” Phase 2 of the project will be more work for crews as it constructs the trail around two separate 30-foot ravines and is expected to be complete sometime in August or September. The construction work is being performed by the Utah Correctional Industries work crew and the project is being done in cooperation with the Scenic Byway Committee.
