    Closed sections of the north umpqua trail?

    Does anyone know for sure which, if any, sections are closed right now? Planning on riding a 15 or so mile portion this weekend.. probably within the jesse wright to mott section.

    A three mile section around the Wright Creek TH from Thunder Creek to Cougar Creek is closed. Thats the eastern end of Tioga and western end of Mott.

    Also there will be roadwork on the road from Toketee Lake to the Hot Springs causing delays on weekdays.

    Is there a bypass for the closed section? I am going to be up there on Monday (8/17/09) and Tuesday and wanted to ride from Horseshoe bend to Swiftwater Park.

    Thanks
    Mike

    There is no bypass, but they have been making good progress on the fire and hopefully will reopen the trail soon. This is where the helicopters have been getting their water.

    The bad news is the center section of Tioga is closed while they build a new trail around an area with numerous slides. No way around it.

    Its going to be hot Monday and Tuesday with highs around 100.

    The section of trail & river that had been closed by the fire has now been reopened.

    The guy from the BLM said he would be checking this week on the progress on the new section of Tioga.

    The estimated completion of the reconstruction of the Tioga segment is September 20.
