We’re sorry to have to postpone the scheduled June 17 Cabin Celebration until October 14. The Holden Trail has so much mud and standing water that hikers are shortcutting through the woods. And the road up through the Littman property – along which refreshments, chairs, and those who cannot hike to the site must be transported – is too wet for safe travel. Trail-maintenance experts Sarah Waldo and Tony Coven have determined that, even if it doesn’t rain from now until June seventeenth, both the trail and access road will still be too muddy for us to responsibly encourage their use. Attempting passage in those wet conditions would certainly “rut up” portions of the private road, which the Littmans were kindly allowing WHPA to use for the event, and would result in slippery footing on Holden Trail, as well as unsanctioned off-trail hiking to avoid water and to gain better traction.
Therefore we’re postponing the celebration date until Saturday, October 14, when we can be more confident of drier weather. Please check this website later to see updated information.
WHPA is sorry for any inconvenience the wet weather may have caused.
