Work on the water control structure and associated levee at the head of the Bluff Trail from Old Cedar Avenue has been partially completed. This partial completion has allowed for the safe reopening of the Old Cedar Avenue parking lot as well as the trailheads from the parking lot to Hogback Ridge and Bluff Trails.
The rebuilding of the boardwalk extending onto Long Meadow Lake will begin sometime in December. To accommodate the delivery of materials and construction of the boardwalk, the Old Cedar Avenue parking lot and head of the Bluff Trail will experience intermittent closures during business hours.
Due to private property encroachment on the Bluff Trail approximately 1/2 mile west of Old Cedar Avenue, a short trail detour has been established. Please respect private property and follow the detour.
The trailhead to Hogback Ridge Trail from the Old Cedar Avenue parking lot has also been reopened as planned work has been temporarily suspended due to winter weather conditions.
Full or partial closures of the trails, trailheads and parking lot at Old Cedar Avenue are likely again in the spring and summer of 2016 as project work is completed in the area.
