Increased Traffic on Hwy 96 thru Seiad Valley

Please note that a significant increase in truck traffic on Hwy 96 through Seiad Valley has made the already tedious road walk on the PCT an area to exercise even more caution. Log trucks carrying logs from post-fire salvage logging are regularly seen heading east while gravel trucks associated with road work near Happy Camp are heading west. Please stay extra vigilant when walking the PCT’s route along Hwy 96 as you cross the Klamath River and pass through the town of Seiad Valley, CA.
