CANNON BEACH, Ore. – Ecola State Park will be closed Nov. 4 – 8 while crews work along the park’s entrance road to remove hazard trees. The park will reopen Nov. 9.
Park rangers have identified several hazard trees—dead, diseased or unstable trees that pose a safety risk to people or structures—on Ecola State Park Road. Rangers will be working with crews from Oregon Department of Corrections to safely remove the trees throughout the week.
Bo Ensign, park ranger supervisor, says hazard tree removal is a routine project during the fall and winter.
