Hikers, please take note! The Gale River Trail relocation has been completed by the USFS and the new trail opened Thursday, August 18. The trail has been relocated to stay on the west side of the Gale River, which eliminates two hazardous crossings in high water. The old trail will be brushed in and a sign will be placed at the junctions directing hikers to the new trail.
Note the relocated section (in pink, at right) of the trail is roughly one mile long, extending the Gale River Trail's full length by a quarter of a mile.
