County-Owned Off-Trail Areas of Greenway Closing Due to Damaged Trees

JACKSON COUNTY, OREGON — The Jackson County Board of Commissioners, due to hazardous conditions in the natural, have closed off-trail areas of the Bear Creek Greenway owned by Jackson County. This nine-mile stretch of county-owned land is along the greenway from Ashland to Central Point. 

Jackson County, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), arborists, and many others fell the trees near the trail to allow the greenway path area's safe to reopen. The cost to remove hazardous trees throughout the entire area would be extensive and ineligible for State or Federal reimbursement. Instead, Park workers will continue to monitor the burn scar and allow nature to take its course with the damaged trees.

Steve Lambert says, "folks are encouraged to use the trail as they normally do.  Have fun biking and walking on the greenway; we ask that you please remain on the paved path for your safety."
