Thanks for the post Bob, but Long Beach is a little far for us to go. But if nothing else comes up we'll see.

Click on the link. The DNR website lists trails impacted and has pictures of the damage.

It's the Upper Mainline. It's one of the first trails you can access out of the gravel pit if you go to the left. There is a meeting tonight of the Focus Group. A couple of our clubs members will be there. as it is for now the trail is closed until something can be done. And with DNR that could take months or years (See Rieter)




Walker Valley Advisory Group,

On May 1, 2012, we had to close a section of the Mainline Trail after a washout occurred. DNR had concerns about public safety and sediment runoff reaching Walker Creek. DNR staff and Department of Ecology are currently assessing the cause of the washout and potential solutions to repair / renovate the trail to get it open as soon as possible. Our goal is to work with you all, who are interested in and invested in the continued operation of the Walker Valley ORV Area. Together, we will define the project objectives, identify needed resources, and implement repairs/renovations. At this early point, it is difficult to provide a timeline for reopening the trail. We cannot begin any renovation projects until the trail dries out and becomes workable again – probably within the next couple of months.

In the meantime, please help us spread accurate and timely information to your constituents. You can learn more by reading our blog article or visiting the online photo gallery.

Please feel free to contact me if you have other questions,
