Anges Creek Bridge Repaired!
According to the National Park Service, the footbridge is
now in place across Agnes Creek on the Agnes Creek Trail and is open to both hikers and stock. The bridge is located one-half mile from the Agnes Creek Trailhead in the Stehekin Valley of Lake Chelan National Recreation Area. The Agnes Creek Trail is part of the Pacific Crest Trail which spans from Mexico to Canada.
The Agnes Creek Trail footbridge was destroyed during the winter of 2006-7 by a large fallen tree. A temporary bridge was put in for the 2007 summer season, while a more permanent replacement was designed. The new
bridge was flown into place on the morning of July 2nd and trail crews have been working to secure the bridge and complete the footing and handrails.
Kudos to the Park Service for repairing this important bridge and restoring access to the PCT!
