A project to expand the trailhead parking area at Lake County Road 6, near the Section 13 cliffs, is underway to better serve Trail users and other visitors to the scenic recreation area.
The Association has coordinated with Lake County on the expansion, which will offer nearly four times the current parking capacity. In addition to providing more access to SHT users and climbers who enjoy the nearby cliffs for their sport, the new parking lot will be built at a more ecologically-sound location near the current lot to add a protective buffer for the nearby Sawmill Creek. Once the new parking area is built, the old lot will be given back to the forest.
We expect the new trailhead parking area to be opened later this year. In the meantime, the existing parking area remains open for winter use.
