Deep Creek former closure

January 18th, 2013
By: Jack Haskel

The Deep Creek detour is a 14.2 mile detour bypassing 15.7 miles of the PCT damaged by winter storms in December of 2010. The storms caused landslides across steep sections of the trail and damaged several bridges North of WR297 including the Deep Creek bridge. The damaged sections and bridges are structurally unsound. Substantial repairs are in progress. Please travel the detour around the area. View a map of the Deep Creek detour.

After much trail reconstruction, the Deep Creek closure has been lifted! As always, we warn you that Deep Creek is not recommended for equestrians.
