The Parks and Land division of Clark County Public Works has indefinitely closed a portion of a Lacamas Regional Park trail near Round Lake.

“The footbridge located on the trail to Lower Falls has sustained significant structural damage and will need to be removed and replaced,” the county stated in a news release. “This process will take one to two years to complete, including environmental permitting.”

Visitors to Lacamas Regional Park in Camas can still access Lower Falls near Round Lake via alternative trails. 

Clark County will install fencing around the closed area and post signs to warn visitors. Until then, the county has placed temporary signs, caution tape and barriers to mark the trail closure. 

“Visitors are reminded to never enter areas closed off by barricades, signs, cones, tape, fencing or other barriers, for their safety,” the county stated in the news release. “To protect the area’s valuable ecosystem and visitor safety, visitors are also reminded to never follow unofficial trails or create their own trails or shortcuts.”

The county does not yet have a reopening date for the trail, but will post periodic updates online at
