With a persistant sheet of water coming over the Waccamaw River dam Thursday morning, the state park has closed the dam to foot traffic for the weekend. See the article below for details.
We have designed routes for the Walk/Run and the Bike & Hike that participants may actually find to be easier.
Walk/Runners will start at the state park and will walk north on Bella Coola. They will pass Dale's and walk to the Wildlife Boat Landing, turn around and come back for a trek a little shorter than 15 miles.
Bike & Hikers Sunday afternoon won't hike this year, but will ride to the state park from Dale's, will turn around and ride to the dam, turn around and ride back to Dale's. This 21-mile route is six miles longer than usual, but without the beautiful hike through the park, it will be easier and faster than the usual route.
