BPA and their contractors will be conducting transmission tower and access road/trail maintenance in the Columbia River Gorge primarily between the Bonneville Dam and Shellrock Mountain from June to December 2019. Construction crews may also access other areas between Shellrock Mountain and Hood River. Please use caution and watch for heavy equipment and vehicles on the following trails where the trails cross the transmission line right-of-way and access roads:
Tanner Creek to Eagle Creek Trail (#400)
Buck Point Trail (#439)
Ruckel Creek Trail (#405)
Pacific Crest Trail (#2000)
Herman Creek Trail (#406)
Wyeth Trail (#411)
Also watch for construction traffic on trails near Starvation Creek State Park and Viento State Park.
Delays on these trails may be necessary during some construction operations. Please note that the Eagle Creek Trail, Buck Point Trail, Ruckel Creek Trail, and Wyeth Trail are currently closed per USFS.
Use this forum to report and discuss trails in need of maintenance. This will help organizations like TKO and agencies like the Forest Service get the most recent on-the-ground trail conditions.
