Wildwood Trail
There is bridge damage on Wildwood Trail at MM 10.3. Proceed with caution. This bridge is about a mile north of the Wildwood/53rd Trailhead and 3/4 mile south of Firelane 1.

Wildwood Trail from mile 14.2 to 15.4 is closed to address trail conditions. Please follow detour route on Koenig, Leif Erikson, and Cleator Trails. Click here for a map of the area during the closure.

Wiregate Trail
From October 1-31, 2020, construction will be occurring to address necessary pipeline repairs on the Kinder Morgan gasline. For the duration of this time, Wiregate Trail will be closed. Please anticipate construction activity and heavy equipment on Leif Erikson (from Germantown to NW Saltzman) and Salzman Road (from Leif Erikson to the Lower Saltzman gate). The Wildwood Trail between Firelane 5 and Trillium Trail (MP 16.75-18.6) is adjacent to the construction activity but will remain open. Please use caution while passing through this section of Wildwood Trail.
