Temporary Closure Extended

Posted Wednesday, June 9, 2021 6:06pm

Auburn Overlook (Tevis Finish) to Gold Street Connector Trail

Unfortunately the trail work taking place on the Auburn Overlook (Tevis Finish) to Gold Street Connector Trail is going slower than anticipated—partly because of people ignoring the closure area. They are expecting to be done by June 25th.

The trail is open after 4pm for training purposes daily.

Please, please avoid this trail during work hours for your own safety. The trail crews really don't want to inadvertently drop a rock on you because you were in the wrong place. Thanks.
