Park City conducts fuel reduction work on Treasure Hill

PARK CITY, Utah — On Thursday, August 4, the town in conjunction with Alpine Forestry will be conducting a forest health and fuels reduction program on the Treasure Hill Open Space. The work area is approximately 55 acres. Fuel reduction work will be done Monday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., lasting for an estimated three weeks.

Fuel reduction is the removal of brush, down trees, and other sources for fire to start from or use to spread. This process promotes forest health and aspen regeneration.

Park City and Moutain Trails will manage the trail closures and signs and coordinate with Park City Mountain.
Mountain Trails will provide daily trail closure updates and routes to the public.

The first closed area will be in the South Sweeney area before transitioning to the Sweeney Switchback Trail, which will remain open until work begins.

Trails that are closed for mitigation work will reopen daily after 4 p.m.

Ongoing defensible space work is due to be finished on August 15. Pile burning will take sometime between Fall 2022 to Winter or Spring 2023, depending on conditions and weather.
