Seasonal gates in operation: Dalles Mt. Ranch/Crawford Oaks
Cattle at work!
Portions of the Eightmile Creek Trail now have seasonal gates in operation Mid May- June. The gates are installed to keep cattle in the area. Cattle grazing helps reduce vegetation (or 'fuels') that feeds wildfire. It also helps to invigorate the soils and encourage biodiversity.
Please open and close gates when entering and exiting the trail section.
DO NOT ALLOW DOGS TO CHASE OR HARRASS CATTLE.
Dogs should be on leash and under physical control when using all portions of the trail at all times of the year.
Enjoy the trail.
