Roger, did they ever rebuild the path after the floods? Or is it now left more natural? We haven't been there in probably 3-4 years. Chris treggE

I was there a few weeks ago and the wooden boardwalk that used to be there is gone. I didn't know that it had been flood damaged.

After the last big washout in the Glen the park service did not replace the boardwalk. They did expend efforts towards improving the pathway and parts of the creek bank outside and on the way into the Glen. I think the park service has come to the conclusion that a boardwalk inside the Glen is a bad idea...it will just be destroyed by an eventual washout and then expensive to remove the debris and replace.

Thinking about heading up tomorrow. Any input if the rock is likely to be wet tomorrow? GenericEric
