SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

These trail restrictions are established in accordance with Environmental Assessment Number WY-062-EA-99-114 (Muddy Mountain Environmental Education Area, August 1999), and the Record of Decision and Finding of No Significant Impact, dated February 2, 2000.

The Muddy Mountain Interpretive Nature Trail was built as a handicapped accessible trail. In order for the trail to be maintained in good condition, it is necessary to restrict certain uses. Excessive use by any of the prohibited devices would cause rapid deterioration of the trail and its effectiveness as a handicapped accessible trail.
