The Albert Pike Recreation area and the nearby Winding Stair trailhead remain closed as Forest Service personnel work to repair damage to the areas after a storm on Memorial Day. A water main break in the Albert Pike Recreation area and loss of electricity has made the restroom facility at the day use area unusable. Downed trees have made the Winding Stair trailhead inaccessible and dangerous for hikers. An update on the status of Albert Pike Recreation area and Winding Stair will be posted as new information becomes available.
