Build A Bridge At Blue Hole

  • Tuesday, May 28, 2024

I have been going to the Blue Hole on the North Chick for many years and have never understood why there isn't a bridge that crosses the creek on the trail. 

When they made the parking lot bigger and added picnic tables to make it more family friendly, I thought it would be a great time to add a bridge. But that didn't happen. 

The fire chief said they have performed 60 rescues there. I dare say we could have paid for a bridge with the amount of resources and money spent on rescues. 

The Blue Hole is a gem in our area and a bridge across the creek would be a win win for everyone.
