Interior didn’t announce funding figures, but the projects it will support include improving and expanding access to 34 miles of trails in the Bureau of Land Management Canyon County District in Utah.

Additionally, Interior will improve bicycle access to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming along Moose Wilson Road at both the north and south ends of the park.
