Pattee Canyon trails to have limited access this week amid repairs, renovations

Locals will see impacted access to Pattee Canyon recreation sites this week as construction teams work on improvements on Lolo National Forest lands. 

The Pattee Canyon Trailhead and Crazy Canyon Trailhead will be closed Sept. 11-15, according to a news release from the Lolo National Forest. Construction crews will work on overdue repairs and improvements to parking areas and access roads. 

“The Pattee Canyon Trailhead will be closed for road maintenance and pothole patching. This closure includes Forest Roads 2133, 2133 A, and 2133 B, as well as the parking area,” the release stated. Part of the project also includes reconstructing the Crazy Canyon Trailhead’s parking area. The closure includes Forest Road 9959 and the parking area.

Officials estimated work will wrap up by Friday, Sept. 15, so the trails will be reopened for weekend use. Main roads in and out of the recreation area won’t be affected by the construction.
