Starting on Thursday, September 26, 2019, due to blowdown removal, many of the central trails on Mt. Tzouhalem will be closed for safety reasons. The area of closure is to prevent riders/hikers from ending up in work zones. Heavy equipment use and active falling will be taking place for approximately 2 weeks. During this time, there will be no access to the closure area.

Fluid is a great down with lots of flow. This loop keeps you out of the closed area and gets the goods.
