Re: Eagle Creek to Tish Creek and little beyond

Has the slide gotten worse from when Peder and I were there mid Feb? Or, is there something worse beyond this? My understanding, based on this , puts the new slide/closure just past High Bridge. No, this one is just past Fern Creek maybe 3/4 mile but not quite to High Bridge. You can see the cliffs...

Re: Eagle Creek to Tish Creek and little beyond

The trail is closed about 1/2 mile past Fern Creek Bridge, so you can do Tish and then Fern Creek then stop 1/2 mile later. And by closed, I mean that we posted and flagged it closed, not just that it is a bad idea to cross it (which it is). We hung out for a while and everyone who saw it agreed and...

Your picture 3 from the bottom appears to be a quinine conk. Usually found on very large old-growth trees. I'm glad it didn't hit anyone on the way down!

Take a look to see if you agree:

Re: Warning signs missing from Oneonta Gorge footbridge

Good catch on the missing signs. We (Forest Service) just got the bridge repaired so the signs are no longer needed. All the nuts and bolts on the bridge got replaced...the old ones were so rusty that they were falling off or cracking. That bridge was installed in the 60s so hopefully we'll get 50 m...

Eagle Creek trail inaccessible at Milepost 2.0

Last week's storm wiped out the first steel bridge on Eagle Creek trail (Tish Creek). Please DO NOT attempt to cross it.

Thank you to all of the volunteers

Just a quick shout out to all of the volunteers who have already put in hundreds of hours removing dozens of trees and mudslides in the last month! The Forest Service is keeping track of all reports of trail damage and fallen logs and coordinating with volunteers to prioritize these. For now, just k...
