Going to the island

Lander Trail - New Fork River Crossing historical park Students cross a makeshift board bridge across a wet swale on the way to the island at the New Fork Park. The property for the 82-acre historical park was acquired in 2010 as mitigation for activity in the Pinedale Anticline gas field and is just beginning to be developed. Work yet to be done includes putting in walking paths, interpretive signs and a parking lot. These students got the first tour of a new planned trail route to get over to the island where immigrant wagons crossed the New Fork River. Eventually a better walking bridge will be installed at this location. The park will have walk-in access only.
