New River Access Point Now Open on Trinity River


A new boat ramp, improved road, parking area and a campground connector trail are now open at the Lorenz Gulch River Access along the Trinity River near Douglas City in Trinity County.

The Bureau of Land Management and the Trinity River Restoration Program announced opening of the new facility just downstream from the BLM's Steiner Flat Campground. The new trail connects the campground with the river access.

The new access is part of the Lorenz Gulch Channel Rehabilitation Project designed to increase salmon and steelhead habitat downstream of Lewiston Dam, and to improve wildlife and fishery habitat while improving public river access and recreation opportunities.

Portions of the project site have been planted with riparian grasses and sedges, upland hardwood and conifer trees, and various other native species, which will take a few years to become established.  BLM and TRRP officials ask users of the area to avoid sensitive restoration sites while the new vegetation becomes established.

For further information about recreational opportunities in the area, contact the BLM Redding Field Office at (530) 224-2100. For information about the rehabilitation projects contact Michele Gallagher, Bureau of Reclamation, at 623-1804 or e-mail magallagher@usbr.gov.
