08/30/06 - Trail Closed at Salt Creek

The Vista trail heading east along the coast from Salt Creek Park is closed. According to the signs there was a big landslide that wiped out the trail completely. This has always been a very pretty trail, heading up and down along the bluffs and headlands, and you know what that means.

On the positive side, the trail up Striped Peak is still open, and, as you can see in the pictures below, there is still some spectacular coastal scenery to enjoy and explore. Can you believe that this is a modestly priced, county run campground? The remodeled, now glassed in grange kitchen looks great.

Salt Creek is not a serious rival to Olympic National Park, but it deserves a bit of public praise now and then.
