Pine Creek Trail reopened to Hikers after Mudslide in Bishop
The Inyo National Forest released a press release about the mudslide on the Pine Creek Trail:
We are happy to report that the Pine Creek Trail has reopened to hikers and to stock. Many thanks to the Inyo National Forest trail crew employees and to the Student Conservation Association (SCA) crew for their very ha
rd work to complete this work. Additionally, thanks to the Pine Creek Pack Station who helped out by packing in tools and equipment. What an excellent partnership!
Repairs are underway on the Gable Lakes Trail, but the trail is passable for hikers who should use caution. This trail had 13 separate washout sections
in the first 1.75 miles of trail. This is a primitive use, non-stock trail and the crews will continue to work on this trail in the upcoming weeks.
Lastly, I also wanted to take a moment to thank Carol Underhill for the spectacular job she did covering public information and public affairs while I was on a detail. It was very comforting to know that the Inyo was in such good hands.
