The trail between Tophill and Beaver Creek trailheads will be closed Sept. 20-Oct. 15 for trail construction. The trail will be closed from McDonald Road just over one mile south of the Beaver Creek Trailhead to the bridge over Highway 47 near Tophill, about one mile north of the entrance to Stub Stewart State Park. The Beaver Creek Trailhead also will be closed for bridge repair work on weekdays until Oct. 1. Stub Stewart State Park is the playground in your backyard. Just 31 miles west of Portland, the park offers camping, picnicking and hiking. If you like trails, this is the park for you. Explore more than 20 miles of trails. Bring your horse or bicycle and spend hours exploring the far reaches of the park. After a day of play, finding a quiet spot to relax is easy in the 1,673 acres of lush rolling hills, forest and deep canyons. Have time for a day trip only? The Hilltop Day-use Area with its views of the Coast Range is perfect for a family gathering. Two trailheads, one at the north end and the other to the south, are gateways to hours of exploring.
