(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - The ramp accessing the Naha River National Recreation trail from the boat dock has been replaced. The Naha River National Recreation trail, roughly 15 miles north of Ketchikan, was damaged during a November, 2014 windstorm. The damaged ramp was removed for safety. The replacement ramp was formerly used at Naukati.

Hikers are advised the Naha trail boardwalk may be slippery and may need repair.

The Ketchikan Resource Advisory Committee funded ramp repairs and installation and the Committee plans to support trail improvements at a later date.

The Ketchikan Resource Advisory Committee is authorized under the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act. The purpose of the committee is to improve collaborative relationships and to provide advice and recommendations to the Forest Service concerning projects and funding.
