Starting May 16, the Shoup Bridge Campground (Idaho), managed by the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Salmon Field Office, will be closed temporarily for restructuring and paving the parking lot to construct a trailhead for the Highway 93 South Trail.
As per a report, to create the new trailhead, the campground will be renovated to provide an area designated for day-use parking associated with trail use.
An additional information kiosk/trail information center will be put up in the parking lot, with maps and details about the project.
The Salmon Field Office will also improve the campground’s recreational facilities, including picnic tables, benches, wayfinding signage, trash receptacles, bicycle racks, and a self-service bicycle repair station.
“We are looking forward to the completion of this 5-mile trail that will connect the town of Salmon to public lands,” Salmon Field Manager Linda Price said. “The new trailhead will provide parking and services for many years to come.”
National and community stakeholders have come together to complete the five-mile paved, non-motorized trail that parallels Highway 93 South from Salmon to the BLM’s Shoup Bridge Campground.
Construction is underway on the Highway 93 South Trail from Salmon to Shoup Bridge Campground.
The campground is scheduled to reopen by June once construction is completed.
