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. After July 10, a rotating schedule will be in place through the Labor Day holiday weekend. The trail will be closed for eight days while the crew is on duty and then open for six days while the crew is off duty. During the closure periods, the trail will remain closed to access 24 hours a day for visitor and job site safety.
