Land Trust Closes Preserves
Friends of the Columbia Gorge Land Trust has closed its Mosier Plateau and Lyle Cherry Orchards preserves. Trust Director Dan Bell said in a statement that people at crowded trailheads, parking areas, and overlooks have little opportunity to follow proper social distance guidance. He said keeping the trails open at this time could present a very real risk to neighbors. Bell added they will follow the guidance of health officials and work with community partners to determine when it is time to re-open trails on the Trust’s public preserves.
