Updated July 11, 4:20 p.m.: The northeastern area of the Monongahela National Forest received significant rain early Sunday, June 30, which caused localized flooding. Forest Service staff continue to assess Forest roads, trails, and facilities to determine the extent of the damage. At this time no Forest roads are closed due to the flood, although some roads may be washed out, rutted and have soft or missing shoulders. Some repairs have already begun.
Seneca Rocks Discovery Center is fully staffed and open daily from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The water system is operational and water is safe to drink. Public flush-toilet rest rooms are open.
Forest visitors should access Seneca Creek Backcountry and Spruce Knob in Pendleton County from the east using State Route 28 to Briery Gap Road, Sawmill Run Road, or Forest Road 112 in order to avoid flood-damaged roads.
