The entrance to Ellison Bluff County Park has washed out because of the rainy conditions over the past month. The gravel path often has to be touched up throughout the year but it is rare for a total closure to be required. Parks Superintendent Ben Nelson says the snag comes at one of the busiest times of the year for Ellison Bluff.
The Door County Facilities and Parks Department plans to meet with the County Highway Department this weekend to determine an immediate fix. The goal is to have a solution in place next week. Hikers can still gain entrance by foot while vehicle traffic is prohibited.
