This information just arrived from Marilyn Murphy, district supervisor for the Mendocino District of California State Parks:
California State Parks announced today that the Pudding Creek Trestle reconstruction project is finished and the bridge will be open this Friday, November 16, just in time for the holiday season.
As of 4:00 p.m. on Friday, it will be possible to walk from Fort Bragg along the historic Georgia Pacific timber hauling road all the way to Ten Mile River. The bridge will be open to pedestrians and bicyclists who no longer will have to share Highway One with cars and trucks just to get to the coast and MacKerricher State Park north of town.
In turn, residents and visitors north of Fort Bragg will now have a pleasant alternative to driving into town. Fort Bragg’s history, shopping, services and restaurants will be just a pleasant walk or bicycle excursion away.
For more information, call the Mendocino District office at (707) 937-5804.
