Scenic Area Day Use Opening Plans Nearing Completion

Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Manager Lynn Burditt told Wasco County Commissioners on Wednesday that the plan of public land agencies is to keep access to their recreation lands restricted through the Memorial Day weekend.  Burditt says various agencies continue to work to coordinate their strategies for reopening recreation opportunities.  She told the Commission that a number of agencies still have steps to take to be ready to open safely, but on the Oregon side of the river they are tentatively looking at easing restrictions on most day-use areas east of the Eagle Creek Closure this coming Wednesday.  On the Washington side of the Columbia Burditt said they are looking at easing restrictions on most day-use sites except Beacon Rock State Trail and Dog Mountain Trailhead.  She also said a few Corps of Engineers day-use sites will be delayed from opening.
