Unveiling New Kiosk at Powwow Trail head 1995
A bit of history. BWCA Wilderness Act of 1978 is passed and leads to completion of the Powwow Trail, probably in 1978-79. In 1993 land managers remove the Powwow Trail from BWCAW 15 year management plan due to lack of maintenance funds. Kekekabic Trail Club (KTC) members lead lobbying effort to bring the PWT back and land managers consent. 1995: Kek Trail Club and Vomela Graphics donate 3M materials and print map of the trail for the trailhead. Forest Service supplies new kiosk. Photo taken in May 1995 at the trailhead. L>R: Duane Cihlar, USFS, unidentified KTC member, Mike Walsh, KTC member, Steve Schug, USFS, Kathleen McAllister, USFS Forest Supervisor, SNF. Thus Powwow Trail legacy continues on.
