Sandy Ridge Trail Closure Extended

***Note: As of 6/16, Sandy Ridge is closed indefinitely due to continued precipitation and trailwork***

Latest from the BLM:

"Work is progressing on the SRT system. We have several independent contractors, IMBA staff, BLM employees and the Northwest Youth Corp tackling some of the drainage issues, armoring sections of Hide and Seek and rerouting a fairly significant road to trail section.

Unfortunately the dry weather has continued to elude us and we are going to have to extend the trail closure on Hide and Seek indefinitely. The tread work that has been performed is in an extremely fragile state and all of the work that has taken place will be compromised if we open the system to users prior to those sections setting up. As of now we are optimistic that the lower Hide and Seek section would be open on or around July 1st, although we are going to have to be flexible if the rain continues."

Further updates will follow.

Please respect these trail closures and refrain from accessing closed portions of the trail system.

FYI, the original closure notice is posted here: http://nw-trail.org/node/2172

The bridge work is on-going, and is looking to be completed in the next couple of weeks.

Good news, good news!
