The Deer Valley Trail located between Highway 4 and Highway 88 in the Alpine – Eldorado area of California is closed.
The Highway 88 portion of the Deer Valley Trail, which is in the Eldorado National Forest, is closed; but, the Highway 4 side, which is in the Stanislaus National Forest, is open.
The Eldorado NF side is closed by court order while the Forest Service does a supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on the Deer Valley Trail and 40 other trails in the Eldorado NF, including Barrett lake Trail. It is estimated that the Forest Service will take about a year complete the NEPA study with public meetings, draft proposals and a Final EIS with appeal process.
