BLACKWATER CANYON trails neglected!

There is a second threat to the Canyon that you need to know about.  The U.S. Forest Service has failed to maintain the beautiful hiking trails in the Blackwater Canyon -- including the Blackwater Canyon Rail Trail, Canyon Rim Trail, and Limerock Trail.  We recognize that huge budget cuts have created big problems for the Forest Service, but at some places on these trails toppled trees block pathways, along with stinging nettles and overgrown rhododendron, make hiking and biking impossible.  Additionally, the camping area at the head of Big Run and the picnic area around Olson Fire Tower have been sorely neglected.  You can click here to send a comment to the Forest Service today. 

Feel like an adventure?  Call our office in Davis at 304-259-5600, and volunteer for a work crew to clear brush!
