Work by volunteers and state Department of Natural Resource trail crews has allowed the department to reopen the Tahuya and Green Mountain state forests trail systems.

The following access areas are now open: the Elfendahl Pass staging area,

Elfendahl Pass 4×4 Trail entrance, Mission Creek trailhead, Wildcat trailhead and Gold Creek trailhead

The trail systems have some access limitations, because several trail bridges and sections of forest roads are severely damaged.

The systems had been closed following the Dec. 3 flood.

The Kammenga and Spillman campgrounds, and the Kammenga 4X4 Trail entrance remain closed. These sites and adjacent trail and associated trail bridges received extensive damage. The campgrounds and trails will be repaired over the winter and re-open in early spring. The Tahuya River Horse Camp will remain closed until forest road access and site damage are addressed.
