Project Description: 
This project provides a loop destination at the North end of Butcher Knife trail.  Butcher Knife trail is a well used secondary gravel trail that parallels Butcher Knife Creek and currently dead ends just past the schools.  By creating a loop on an old irrigation ditch on the hillside above the school, trail users will have a clear destination on an excellent beginner trail that originates downtown near Old Town Hot Springs and the Rabbit Ears Motel.

At approximately 0.5 miles in length and an average grade of approximately 3%, this trail provides an excellent beginner loop with views back toward town that complement the existing trail which parallels Butcher Knife Creek.

Project Specific Benefits:
  • Provides a loop at the north end of Butcher Knife trail. 
  • Saves cost by establishing the trail as an all-season gravel secondary trail that could be paved at a future date if desired.
