THE Page 12 OGDEN VALLEY NEWS Volume X Issue X September 1, 2004 The OVN Hosts a Year of Essay Contests PATHWAYS cont. from page 10 take the first right at the Ice Box Canyon Trail. At the end of this trail, take a left and retrace your steps back to the Wheeler Creek Trailhead. To make a loop of about 8 miles, you can link up the East Fork Wheeler Creek Trail with the Middle Fork of the Wheeler Creek Trail, and the lower end of the upper section of the Wheeler Creek Trail. Begin this route at Art Nord Trailhead or Green Pond Trailhead. If you start at Art Nord, you'll be climbing at the beginning and descending at the end. Also, Art Nord Trailhead has toilets and lots of parking space for horse trailers. Green Pond Trailhead has limited parking and no toilets. A long hike that I like is to link up both Wheeler Creek trails with the East Fork Wheeler Creek Trail and Ogden Valley Overlook Trail. This outing is about 15 miles, so if you go plan to be out all day. Starting at Wheeler Creek Trailhead, head south along Wheeler Creek Trail. At Art Nord Trailhead, cross Old Snowbasin Road and catch the East Fork Wheeler Creek Trail. Go left at the intersection with Middle Fork Wheeler Creek Trail and head up to the Green Pond Trailhead. Walk along the new Snowbasin Road for about | mile to the old Snowbasin day lodge. Here, get on the ski area road that heads down the hill to the new day lodge. Walk across the lower parking lot and get on the road at the west end of the lot. Head north and then west on the Ogden Valley Overlook Trail. Go to the end of the Overlook Trail; double back; and then head east and north on the upper section of Wheeler Creek Trail. At the fork with Ice Box Canyon Trail (after the fork with Middle Fork Wheeler Creek Trail), take Ice Box Canyon Trail back to Wheeler Creek Trail and back to Wheeler Creek Trailhead. There are other variations you can devise in this wonderful area. It’s especially good in autumn with the view of lots of fall colors. You can pick up a trail map (Pathways of Weber County) at the Ogden Valley Library. Or, come to any Ogden Valley Pathways meeting and get one while you’re there.

September 13: Ogden Concert Band The concert series will kickoff with the lively music of the Ogden Concert Band. Tracing it musical roots to the Pitt Brass Band, which accompanied the pioneers to the Salt Lake Valley, the group of approximately fifty musicians performs as musical ambassadors for the city of Ogden. Made up of professional and semiprofessional musicians, and directed by Tom Root of Weber State University, the band plays a wide variety of music ranging from subtle and jilting jazz to energetic marches and traditional concert music. For more information on the official band of Ogden City, visit their website at W This year, 2004, marks the 40th anniversary of the Wilderness Act signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964. The Wilderness Act was a landmark in world conservation history. Its goal was to assure that an increasing population accompanied by expanding settlement and growing mechanization, did not occupy and modify all the areas within the United States leaving no lands designated for preservation and protection in their natural condition. At that time, a little over 9 million acres of wilderness were established. The Act enables the US Congress to establish Wilderness areas on federal lands and to administer those areas so as to preserve primeval natural conditions and opportunities for solitude and primitive recreation. Congressionally designated wilderness is to have no permanent development, human habitation, commercial enterprise, permanent or temporary roads, or motor vehicles and equipment. Wilderness does allow hunting and fishing and mineral prospecting; and water reservoirs and grazing are allowed only when previously established. No areas on the WasatchCache National Forest were created as wilderness from the 1964 Act. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of the Utah Wilderness Act signed into law in 1984. On the Wasatch-Cache National Forest, the following areas became wilderness: High Uintas (Kamas, Evanston and Mountain View Districts and shared with the Ashley National Forest), Mount Naomi and Wellsville Mountains (Logan District) and Twin Peaks and Mount Olympus (Salt Lake District). The Lone Peak Wilderness on the Salt Lake District and shared with the Uinta National Forest was actually created by the Endangered Wilderness Act of 1978. Thus, there are now seven wilderness areas on the Wasatch-Cache Forest totaling 309,079 acres. In addition, the revised Forest Plan has recommended creating new wilderness areas at Lakes (Kamas District) and Upper South Fork (Ogden District), as well as additions to the High Uintas Wilderness. Designated wilderness areas are managed and their values protected according to these three wilderness acts, approved wilderness plans (currently only the High Uintas up today!

Be considerate of other visitors. Some wilderness areas on the WasatchCache National Forest have group size limits, stock regulations, and camping and campfire restrictions. John Muir once said, “The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness.” The Forest Service hopes that you take the opportunity to get out into the Wasatch-Cache Wilderness areas and experience their natural spiritual and recreational values. 801-745-4000 2555 WOLF CREEK DR. twice EDEN STORE HOURS: MON. - SAT. mwRecycling@email.com F s Ice I I shepherd at Wilderness has one), the Forest Service manual, and the Forest Land Management Plan. The Forest plan has a Forestwide goal for designated wilderness to maintain wilderness ecosystems and characters, primarily influenced by the forces of nature; to provide opportunities for public use, enjoyment, and understanding of wilderness; and to preserve a high quality wilderness resource for present and future generations. Wilderness is managed to sustain wild ecosystems for values other than those directly related to human uses. The Plan’s desired future condition is that wilderness is managed and protected for the plants and animals that live there and their habitat; the preservation of large, intact ecosystems, clean air, and water; and primitive recreation opportunities. Natural ecological processes are dominant. Ecosystems are influenced by natural process with little or no intervention. People visiting wilderness within the National Forest find opportunities for exploration, solitude, risk, and challenge. Human use in the wilderness is provided while preserving wilderness character. The adverse impacts of human use are controlled and reduced through education and regulation. One way to control these impacts is through emphasis of the Leave No Trace Principles. These principles include: Mountain West Recycling is pleased to offer you its curbside recycling service for the Sign +4 o ~ Plastics (milk jugs, plastic bottles, grocery bags, etc.) ~ Aluminum, tin low monthly fee of $10.00 per month.
