The Drift Creek Falls Trail and trailhead will be closing temporarily during October while repairs are made to a section of washed out trail. The trail is expected to close for multiple days starting October 15, but work is dependent on weather so visitors are encouraged to contact the Hebo Ranger Station to confirm.
The approximately 100 foot section of washed out trail has been depositing soil into Drift Creek, which may impact fish habitat, and has interfered with hikers’ ability to enjoy this popular trail. The repairs will include construction of a rock gabion, or small retaining wall, and re-establishment of the walking surface. For more information, please contact the Hebo Ranger Station at 503-392-5100.
