Forest Service eases trail restrictions in Eagle Cap Wilderness

By Jayson Jacoby, The Baker City Herald

The Wallowa-Whitman National Forest has re-opened two trails in the Eagle Cap Wilderness, and will re-open a third on Thursday at 8 a.m.

All three trails had been closed since early July due to wildfires.

Cougar Ridge and Bearwallow trails are open now.

The Hurricane Creek trail remains closed between the trailhead and the junction with the Echo Lake trail, but that section will re-open Thursday at 8 a.m.

At that time, however, the area east of the Hurricane Creek trail will be closed to the public.
