Roots against erosion: Bitter Root Water Forum project to stop erosion at new Hamilton park
The well-worn trail along the Bitterroot River at Hamilton’s new Skalkaho Bend Park is a testament to its popularity for folks looking for a breath of fresh air in a beautiful setting.
While most people take in the stunning views of the river and its mountain backdrop, it’s likely that many don’t give a second thought to the fact the trail they are walking on will likely disappear someday.
But all it takes is one look at the long stretch of the eroding bank of the river to get a glimpse of what’s to come.
