Opal Creek Bulletin

OC Trail

The Battle Axe Bridge in Jawbone Flats is currently closed to pedestrian traffic due to damage to one of its main supports. Hikers cannot currently hike through Jawbone Flats. The Kopetski Bridge and Trail (/Opal Creek Trail) that fork off the main road a mile outside of camp ARE open and visitors wanting to explore beyond Jawbone Flats are encouraged to take this route to go deeper into the watershed. We will keep you updated on any repairs and are currently exploring a foot bridge option.
