Default Crystal Valley Firetower Hill to be Closed

Chris Fredrick gave me a 'heads up' that the hill will be closed by the end of June/ beginning of July. They don't have specific places to put the barriers yet, so I asked if I could go out with them when they take a look at where to put them. We didn't submit official comment so we don't have any legal standing for appeal.

But . . .

If they don't care if it goes in place 'A' or place 'B', but place 'B' blocks another trail off that we want, maybe I can point that out and get them to put it in place 'A'.

He said he'd talk with Kathy (went on the trail ride with us) and let me know.

You missed a good spot to go to. Pat took me out there last summer. You can still get to it, you just need a horse or a team of sled dogs, depending on the season....

Instead of closing it, would they be open to a volunteer group going in and fixing it?
