Upper Icicle Remains Closed

June 17, 2011

If your weekend outing

includes a trip into the Upper Icicle Valley, forget it. Public access into the popular recreation area is

restricted due to threats of mudslides. The closure starts at the junction of Eightmile Road and Icicle Rd because

the hillsides are unstable and water saturated.

A large mudslide last Friday forced the closure which

stranded over 30 campers before crews could rescue them.

The District continues to keep the area closed

because of continued mud slides flowing in the upper Icicle and the potential for more slides to occur. There is

no estimate on when the area will be reopened.
