The heavy rainstorms of Sept 20th have damaged a section of the Gateway just N of the Manning bridge. Extreme water flow washed out a section of embankment and this has collapsed taking the edge of the trail with it. There is a small section of asphalt missing and a 10' or more sheer drop . There is orange safety fencing and the trail is still passable. Watch out for repair crews and possible trail closure to repair or if things develop further

Please take care during and immediately after rain and windstorms since there may be trail washouts, downed trees or downed powerlines. Please report such incidents to the DNR on 651-259-5736. It is also helpful if you move smaller branches off to the side of the trail and out of everyone's way . Happy trails !
