One of the projects on the SVBC DCR grant is the reroute of the Wild Oak Trail as it comes down Horse Trough Hollow and crosses the North River. The current interface brings the trail straight down to the North River where it drops down steep embankments to the water and then goes through Camp Todd. Sometimes the water level in the North River is very high making the trail on the other side nearly impossible to access. This has caused people to either avoid this section of the Wild Oak Trail in the winter when it is too cold to get wet or caused them great discomfort. Only a quarter mile upstream Forest Service Road 95 crosses the North River via a sturdy, road grade bridge. It is after this bridge where the new trail head meets Forest Service Road 95. Don’t worry, the old trail will remain open for those who want to ford the North River. This reroute will provide a dry crossing for this ever popular shared use trail.

This is what the first climbing turn now looks like on the Camp Todd reroute as you begin the new section of trail coming up from Forest Service Road 95

This is the creek crossing on the new Camp Todd reroute BEFORE Trail Dynamics came through and armored the crossing and built the trail to connect the Wild Oak National Recreation Trail with Forest Service Road 95 utilizing a road bridge over the North River

This is that same creek crossing AFTER Trail Dynamics came through and rock armored the crossing
