What does the project involve?

The project will be completed over the course of three summer seasons and includes the construction of masonry retaining walls, drainage improvements, paving to 8 foot width, bench installation, revegetation, and improving the first 4/10 of a mile of the trail to federal accessibility standards.

When is the trail open?

Hurricane Hill Trail will be open during periods when crews are not working. During the closure periods, the trail will remain closed to access 24 hours a day for visitor and job site safety.
