With limited staff and for the safety of crews some restroom facilities will remain closed at this time. Oregon State Parks are opening several flush restrooms throughout the management unit. The state park restroom facilities that will be opening close to the Hood River community will be: Hatfield West HCRH state trail restrooms, Mayer State Park, Viento day use and Starvation Creek.
Please be respectful of Park Ranger's and plan on not all services, including access to hand washing, being available at your favorite hiking and biking spots at this time. As always, try to leave our trails and parks better than you find them, pack it in pack it out, and maintain social distancing when out and about in this gorgeous weather.
