POTENTIAL FOR DUAL DEVELOPMENT
If the Park Commission is so inclined to build a Mining Town the Elkhorn City Area Heritage Council would suggest that it be done in the EIl Flats area with access through Bluehead or Pond Branch.
This would allow for the Pioneer section to be separate. The mining town section could have parking facilities and tourist could access the pioneer village via walking trials or a narrow gauge railroad.
This would also keep heavy vehicular traffic off of the river and would be better ecologically.
