The fire road section of Inverness Ridge Trail at Point Reyes National Seashore will be temporarily closed from Monday March 5 through Friday March 9 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The closure area is approximately 1.3 miles in length from the Bayview Trail parking lot to Sunnyside Drive. The closure will allow the use of heavy brush cutting equipment next week to remove vegetation on both sides of the fire road. This will improve emergency access and egress along a corridor which leads to a residential area adjacent to the park. 

The alternate route around the closure is 3.6 miles along the Drakes View and Bayview Trails, however bicycles cannot be used on these trails. Additional information about the trail system is available at the visitor center by calling 415-464-5137. Trail maps can also be found on the park website at www.nps.gov/pore.
