Headwaters Elk River Trail Closure Extended Due to Construction

A temporary closure of the Elk River Trail in the Headwaters Forest Reserve has been extended into the first week of August, while workers complete construction of a new parking area.
Lynda Roush, manager of the BLM Arcata Field Office, said the closure is necessary for public safety because heavy equipment is working.
The project includes redesign of the parking lot to improve convenience and efficiency and to improve access for people with mobility difficulties.
The new parking lot will be surfaced with a permeable material designed to minimize runoff.
