Whiskeytown Announces the Temporary Closure of the Crystal Creek Falls Area
Contact: Sean Denniston, (530) 242-3445
The Crystal Creek Falls and Quarry area will be periodically closed weekdays beginning January 10, 2012 while park staff and contractors install a new parking area, restroom facility, paved path and picnic area to make the falls site accessible to individuals with disabilities. During this period, workers will also plant vegetation as part of the restoration of the Crystal Creek Quarry. This closure is necessary to provide for the safe use of heavy equipment. The National Park Service anticipates these weekday closures will last through January 27. Please contact the Park Visitor Center at (530) 246-1225 for Crystal Creek Falls trail status.
