It’s never been exactly “safe” walking along the section of South Shore Road that connects the West Bluff trails to the sidewalk at the south end of the lake. Speeding cars and a blind corner rarely mix well! Now, that’s finally changing.
After a search for remnants of an endangered orchid that was once found in the area turned up nothing, construction was allowed to go ahead. Soon the sidewalk along south shore will be extended to meet the West Bluff trails. Until then, hikers need to be extra cautious around the machinery and drivers will also want to go slow through the construction area.
Note: South Lake Road will be closed on Monday 08-25 and Tuesday 08-26 from 6 AM – 9 AM by the boat landing to replace the culvert.
