Last week four new bucks were erected at Millionaire's Pool.

Friends of Harriman is submitting a grant on behalf of Harriman to acquire funds to surface the ¾ mile John Muir Interpretive Trail to comply with ADA standards creating a ADA accessible trail. Harriman State Park has experienced increasing demand from visitors to create additional handicap accessible areas in the park including fisherman access points. ADA access to the HSP trail system is currently limited to a 0.25 mile high traffic, straight stretch of asphalt trail between the Ranchview parking lot and the Historic Ranch buildings and does not provide handicap access to the river for fishing opportunities. By surfacing the John Muir Interpretive Trail to meet ADA standards, a handicap fishermen access would be created as well as access along a scenically stunning stretch of river. The trail leaves the Visitor Center to Sage Flat Parking, follows the Henrys Fork River and loops back to the visitor center. Click here to see map of the proposed ADA John Muir Trail. Harriman is looking for public comment to guide this process. If you would like to participate in the public comment, please post your comments here.

Thanks to a matching grant project with the IDPR's Recreational Trails Program and the Idaho Falls Nordic Ski Patrol, Harriman State Park has two new groomers. With Friends of Harriman serving as the grant administrator, Assistant Park Manager Jodi Vincent devised a grant where the Recreational Trails Program would match funds with Idaho Falls Nordic Ski Patrol allowing the Park to get these groomers on the snow quickly. "IDPRRTP and IFNSP and HSP have always had a great relationship so it was a slam dunk," said Jodi.
