Public comment sought on Yellowstone improvement plan

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) – Yellowstone National Park is seeking public comment on a plan to rehabilitate many of the overlooks and trails along the rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River.

The National Park Service says the project would rehabilitate a number of existing overlooks and trails situated along both the north and south rims of the canyon.

Areas to be rehabilitated include: the Brink of the Upper Falls overlooks and trails, the Brink of the Lower Falls overlook and trail, Inspiration Point overlook and trail, and portions of the North and South Rim Trails.

Parking areas at the Brink of the Upper Falls and the Uncle Tom’s area would be reconfigured slightly to increase efficiency and parking capacity.

The deadline to submit comments is midnight Sept. 16.
