Most hikers near Sandy know Bells Canyon for its waterfalls. But you have to hike a trail to reach the falls.
In August, U.S. Forest Service workers and volunteers from the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation cleared fallen trees, brush and other debris obstructing the trail, according to a letter from the Forest Service. The trail crew also removed more than 100 cairns placed along the path, apparently incorrectly, and placed 19 rock cairns marking the correct path.
The trail crew also made a "wilderness bridge" out of two debarked trees. That should make the trail a lot dryer for hikers wanting to reach the waterfalls.
See the letter for full details about the improvements in Bells Canyon.
