Crossroads prepares for trail closures

You will have to re-route some of your hikes through Crossroads at Big Creek this spring. Work has already begun preparing for the removal of the nearly 25-year-old Cedar Crossing Bridge and the North Bridge, which included removing the boardwalk in some spots. The trail itself will be closed on short sections of the Creek and Forest Trails through the property. Crossroads at Big Creek Executive Director Laurel Hauser says the new bridges will not only be safer for their visitors but also help protect the wetland areas along the creek.

The organization spent close to a year fundraising for the project. Pending weather conditions, the majority of the six miles of trails on the property will remain open for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and kicksledding.
