Wildwood Trail Closure coming in July 2018

The Wildwood Trail will be closed between Cornell Road and the intersection with the Lower Macleay Trail from Monday, July 9 -  Friday, July 13, 2018. This will allow the contractor to remove the old bridge and abutments (pictured above). During this closure, the Stone House will be still be accessible via Wildwood Trail from the north or via the Lower Macleay Trail. Check out the detour map.

This work is being done in the summer because of the regulations around soil-disturbing activity within the Balch Creek watershed. It is the final step in completing the Bond-funded Forest Park bridge improvements. Thank you for your patience as we complete these necessary improvements to our trail system!
