Drift Creek Falls Trail closes for repairs


    drift creek fallsThe popular trail to Drift Creek Falls near Lincoln City will close temporarily while repairs are made to a section of washed out trail, officials said in a news release.

    The trail closes on Thursday, Sept. 29 and is expected to reopen around October 7. Visitors are encouraged to contact the Hebo Ranger Station before visiting to confirm that the trail has reopened (503-392-5100).

    Approximately 100 feet of trail is washed out and has been depositing soil into Drift Creek.

    The washout may be impacting fish migration, along with making the hike more challenging according to officials. Repairs will include construction of a rock gabion, or small retaining wall, and re-establishment of the walking surface.
