River Work Progress

Black Bear, Arn, October, and November Holes


River work continues along the Black Bear, Arn, October, and November Holes. In-stream work is complete for the October and November Holes, while terracing is still underway at Black Bear and Arn Holes. In-stream work will be followed by revegetation and general bank cleanup along each area. 

Please remember these areas will remain closed, until project completion. The contractors have requested tighter control over the site for safety reasons, which includes the Black Bear Hole pedestrian bridge and parking lot, along with a significant portion of the trail area. They do plan to leave a walkway along the north portion of the trail, connecting at 2nd Ave. bridge, for foot traffic.
