Bizz Johnson Trail hosts hand cart trip commemoration
The BLM's Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail took on the look of the mid 1800s during the week of June 27, when an event commemorating the Mormon Migration of 1847 traversed the entire 26-mile length of the trail.
Nearly 200 members of the Mormon Church took part in the event to commemorate the Mormon migration to the Salt Lake Valley. The "family" groups pulled two-wheeled hand carts packed with supplies for the four-day outing. The BLM Eagle Lake Field Office issued a special recreation use permit for the event.
The Eagle Lake Field Office periodically issues permits to groups who find the wide and smooth trail ideal for such outings.
