Rocks Dumped into Mission Creek
By an edhat reader
I was hiking up tunnel trail on Thursday and was surprised to see the road marked at closed at the gate with rocks blocking entrance. I climbed over these, and noticed significant work had been done to widen and scrape the road. Once I got to the bridge by the water tunnel, I noticed that mission creek had been filled up with rocks below the bridge from the road widening. Also, workers a short ways after the bridge told me that the road/trail up to inspiration point was closed due to heavy equipment. Hopefully they will be cleaning these rocks out of the creek and not just leaving them there, that would likely be bad for the creek ecosystem and water flow during storms.
