Hospital Hill Trail update - Feb 1 2013

As of 2/1/13 - SDS has started their salvage logging operation on Hospital Hill. 

Area/trails affected:
  • Evergreen Highway (above bottom of Triple Bypass)
  • Tripple Bypass
  • Hector Connector
  • Monkey trail
  • Area between the two top gates
  • Area west and south of upper two gates.

SDS asks recreational users stay at least 400 feet away from all harvesting equipment and tree felling operations.  

IF YOU HEAR POWERSAWS or HEAVY EQUIPMENT, PLEASE USE AN ALTERNATE ROUTE !  
When the trees are down and the cable-logging begins, even 400-feet may not be far enough away to prevent serious injuries, as active lines are strung around through the adjoining timber and some trees may be felled far away from the harvest unit for safety reasons.
This operation should take 2+ months to complete - please stay out of the affected areas till you hear otherwise.
Work party notifications will be sent out when we can get access/permission to repair affected trails and then ride again.
 
Good news is that the front side (Hospital Hill Trail) and Millennium are still open to ride!
