Building trails at Hagg Lake Park


Black and white image of a Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) worker with a grub hoe, clearing brush and ground cover for a hiking trail at Hagg Lake Park. Fifteen miles of hiking and bicycling trails were eventually constructed at Hagg Lake. YCC programs provided summer employment for local youth and introduced them to conservation work in public lands, mostly campgrounds and national parks. During the late 1970s grants were often provided to state and local governments to fund YCC crews for local projects such as Hagg Lake Park. This was the first county park in Washington County, created when the Bureau of Reclamation built the Scoggins Dam and Hagg Lake was formed in the mid-1970s. Henry Hagg was a long time resident of the Scoggins Valley and had been one of the original initiators of the Scoggins Dam project in 1934.
