USE CAUTION while on the trails, they still have significant damages from the rains of August 13th. Peter's bridge (map white 21) has been washed away.
Thank you to all who have donated to the Rebuild McKaig Park Fund though we are still below our goal, the funds continue to be used for trail repairs and materials.
We are still in the planning stage on how to rebuild the bridge.
