What does the project involve?

The project will be completed over the course of three summer seasons (2018-2020) and includes the construction of masonry retaining walls, drainage improvements, repaving 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 going to open?

Update 08/10/20: Hurricane Hill Trail reopened Monday, August 10.
