The Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge continues to deal with damage caused by the January ice storm.

The biggest issue were the trails that wound through the trees near the visitor center. Falling limbs caused some significant damage.

A portion of the Twin Barns Loop Trail remains closed, awaiting repair and the removal of broken branches hanging over the trail, said refuge manager Jean Takekawa.

“There’s all these hanging branches that are broken, but haven’t come down. Some of them are really high. We’re still working on how to get them down,” she said.

It is still possible for visitors to do the one-mile loop, Takekawa said. They created a path to weave people around the stretch that remains closed.
