Hey - I just walked ( 7-16-07) on the new trail along the Sweetwater. I was lost where the two 'trails' merge while going north. What a nightmare, but lo and behold, in the middle of no where I stumbled with help from my GPS onto the new trail - with all the trimmings including an excavator patting down the trail !!! I had five miles on cruise control. Eric White

Bridger-Teton National Forest. The Forest has approved a relocation that 
will enhance the CDT between Little Sandy Lake and Pine Creek -- up the 
East Sweetwater River (as in the original guidebook, see Map 19) instead 
of following roads outside the forest (as in the Wyoming supplement). 
This segment is slated for work this summer and should be available for 
travel in 2008.

The District has also scheduled maintenance work this summer on the 
trail between Gunsight Pass and Roaring Fork (Gros Ventre Segment 4, 
supplement page 18). They are aware of hikers' concerns regarding 
inadequate marking, especially at the upper trail junction. If you will 
be traveling here this summer, your feedback would be appreciated. (The 
supplement includes estimated GPS locations of 43 22.82 N, 109 51.04 W 
for the upper junction, 43 22.118 N, 109 50.229 W for the Roaring Fork 
Basin -- but these should be revised if field observations are available.)
