Trail ambassadors: New program aims to mitigate conflict on area trail system
March 15, 2015 / Bozeman Daily Chronicle by Ben Pierce
From Bozeman the quick drive to the College ‘M’ trailhead at the southern end of the Bridger Mountains is a pleasant one. Heading east out of town the whitewashed monogram looms above on the forested slopes, beckoning Bozemanites for a morning stroll or an afternoon outing with the kids.
From a distance the College ‘M’ is the idyllic vision of a successful, well-used community trail. But turn off Bridger Canyon Drive and that vision is shattered. In white spray paint, in large lettering, “STOP DOG POLLUTION” greets visitors on the pavement leading to the parking area.
