The suspension bridge leading to the Grove of the Patriarchs in Mount Rainier National Park has been repaired. The bridge was washed out in the floods that devastated the park nearly a year ago. The grove is a popular destination in the park’s southeast corner.

The Grove of the Patriarchs trail bridge over the Ohanapecosh River has been repaired.

If you’re coming from the South Sound, you’ll need to go through Packwood to reach this corner of the park. Crews continue to work on Stevens Canyon Road, and it is unlikely the road will reopen until next spring.
