cier. While this trail will probably be
used mainly by sportsmen and pleas
ure seekers, it will also serve the
prospector and holders of the various
coper claims in the region. To further
the recreational development of this
section, the Forest Service will lay
out a number of Summer home sites
along the route of the Eyak Lake road
and Power Creek trail. Also, a pub
lic camp ground has been selected and
as soon as funds are available will be
cleared and provided with tables,
benches, fire place, and other conven
iences.
A number of citizens of Cordova
have requested the construction of
a scenic trail to Mt. Eyak. The For
est Service will locate a route for such
a trail as soon as climatic conditions
will permit and make an estimate of
the cost. An effort will then be made
to have the City of Cordova co-oper
ate to the extent of furnishing a small
part of the cost of construction, with
a view of constructing the trail this
coming field season.
A trail program for the Kenai
Peninsula is being worked up and
construction of some projects in that
region will begin this coming sea
son.
