The Pete’s Creek Trailhead restroom, located on Olympic National Forest’s Pacific Ranger District, was vandalized recently when hit with shotgun blasts. It is closed indefinitely until repairs can be made, forest officials said late Wednesday.
The Lower Pete’s Creek Trail remains open.
The list of repairs includes replacing the windows, toilet, ventilation stack, handicap railing, toilet paper bar and trash can.
“It is unfortunate that some people can spoil things for everyone without considering the impact of their actions,” District Ranger Dean Millett said in a prepared statement. “The cost of the needed repairs has not been factored into our current budget. This will pose some challenges as costs are expected to exceed $900.”
