Starting March 15th, 2018 the Belden Day Use Area int he Feather River Canyon Closed. Alternative location provided for access.

Public Access Update – March 4, 2018 – PG&E’s Belden Day Use Area in the Feather River Canyon along Hwy 70 will be closed to public access beginning March 15, 2018 to approximately October 2019 due to a highway project by Caltrans that proposes to reconstruct the Hwy 70 bridge over Yellow Creek.

The PG&E day use facility will be used as a construction staging area by Caltrans for this project and will be closed to public use during the term of the project. Caltrans will provide alternate recreation parking and portable toilets during the project at a site across the Belden Bridge in Belden.

This temporary day use parking site will be located on PG&E property along Howells Rd and is intended to allow for the continued public use of area trails and stream/river reaches during the project.

Caltrans will provide signage in the area directing users to the alternate recreation parking site as well as how to access area trails around the construction closure. For highway project information please contact Denise Yergensen, Caltrans Public Information Officer at (530) 225-3260.
