New improvements await visitors at national conservation areas including McInnis Canyons and Dominguez-Escalante.
The Rabbit Valley Project in McInnis Canyons included a remodeled restroom, a more well-designed parking lot, and an improved trailhead.
The Bureau of Land Management also has plans to redesign and improve the campground in that area. The plans include enlarging the area, redesigning camping spots, and improving vehicle access.
Meanwhile, the Dominguez-Escalante project at Bridgeport features a new parking area, with spots for hikers, buses, horse trailers, and a new restroom.
Katie Stevens, an National Conservation Area manager with the BLM explained just how frequently the McInnis improvements are expected to be taken advantage of by those recreating in the area.
"It's used a lot," she explained. "It's sort of a primary staging area for Rabbit Valley, and those motorized recreationists are out there often, and we want them to have nice facilities to use while they're there."
The funding for the work is coming from capital improvement projects.
The BLM uses the funding to make annual changes to keep its facilities fresh and accessible.
