BLM Announces Trail Reopening in Headwaters Forest Reserve


The Little South Fork Elk River Trail in the Headwaters Forest Reserve has been reopened following a temporary closure for an erosion control project. Officials at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) said the trail is dry and in great condition.

The trail starts about three miles from the Elk River Trail parking area near Eureka.

The Headwaters Forest Reserve is 7,472 acres of public land near Eureka. The BLM, in partnership with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, manages the area to preserve ecological and wildlife values, particularly the stands of old-growth redwood that provide habitat for the threatened marbled murrelet, and the stream systems that provide habitat for threatened coho salmon.

Trail information, including driving directions to trailheads, is available by visiting www.blm.gov/ca/arcata, or by calling the BLM Arcata Field Office, (707) 825-2300.
