Tom McCall Nature Preserve, OR

Tom McCall Nature Preserve alert Trail Alert. Click here for more info
11/1/16: Seasonal trail closure - this trail is now closed and will reopen on May 1, 2017.

The McCall Point trail, leading south from the Rowena overlook,is seasonally closed due the erodible nature of the ash-based soils which comprise the trail tread on much of the trail. The wet conditions often encountered in winter and spring result in saturated soils and when combined with human foot traffic result in severe damage to the trail tread. Hikers using the trail when the tread is saturated create ruts (or secondary trails) which, over time, funnel water down the trail rather than allowing it to drain across the trail, thus increasing erosion.
