Reclaiming the “View” at Viewpoint

by melissa on June 8, 2015

Plans are in the works for a few of the cabins to have their viewsheds restored. Opening up the views around several of the cabins serves a dual purpose: visitors will be able to enjoy looking at the ridges and mountains again, and the trees cut will be processed and used as firewood for those specific cabins. An on-site operation.

We contracted out to a local logger to start restoring the viewsheds. They have already completed much of the work at Viewpoint Cabin. Please, for the next week or so, refrain from hiking near Viewpoint. As soon as the work is done, we’ll let you know, and then you can go enjoy the vista.

All the wood cut to open up the viewshed will be used as firewood at the cabin.
