After several years of use, the Ma’kya Trail slowly fell into disrepair. As the guys of Post 331 got older, they slowly moved on from camp staff to other jobs, and the Post eventually folded. After several years, the trail fell into disrepair and began to disappear as nature began to reclaim the paths.
Since that time, there have been several attempts to revive the Ma’kya Trail with varying success, and it was successfully reopened for a few years in 1985-89. Other attempts were made, including using the name “Ma’kya” to describe a Leave No Trace hiking program in the mid-2000s. These attempted revitalizations would only last for a few years before the trail would inevitably fade back into a mere memory.
The revitalization of the Ma'kya Trail is currently an ongoing project. Completed sections of the trail are marked by metal diamond trail markers.
