This information is updated as needed when trails are opened or closed, or when there is scheduled trail maintenance.

Trail conditions can vary depending on the time of year, the impact of rain and storms, construction and maintenance and other occurrences. Please be aware that trail closures may change from day to day without notice, based on current and predicted weather conditions. During winter storm season high waters can make creek crossings hazardous, so plan your outing accordingly. 

Trail closures are strictly enforced.

Bear Creek Redwoods

  • Construction activities related to the Alma Cultural Landscape Rehabilitation Project are underway at Bear Creek Redwoods Preserve and expected to continue through Summer 2022. This work should not impact public access to the preserve, but there may be temporary detours near the parking lot and Upper Lake. Drive with caution in the parking lot as some construction is planned to take place in and around that area. Temporary reductions in parking capacity may limit available space, so have a backup plan in case the lot is full. For your safety and the safety of the construction crews, please follow all guidelines posted on temporary signage.
