Logging closes the Upper Skokomish Trail

This is the logging operation on the road going up to Pine Lake they are cuttting the trees to raise money to decomission just 1/2 mile of the road. I hope they use some of that money to fix the foot bride that went out this year but I'm not holding my breath.

The trail just opened up for the season but the snow was too deep, now the snow it gone so they are closing it for logging. sigh.. Staircase is still closed too. With all the closed trails and the price of gas I may as well just walk laps around the jr. high track field. :(

Olympic National Forest is scheduled to close Forest Service Road 2361 for contract work beginning June 2. The road will be closed from milepost 4.5 to milepost 5.9 and is scheduled to reopen June 13. Road 2361 is located on the south end of the Hood Canal Ranger District, 20 miles northwest of Shelton. Due to the closure, the trailhead for the Upper South Fork Skokomish Trail will not be accessible.

I can't find this information on the Olympic Website. How long do they expect it to be closed? Was there a date on a sign out in the field?

I think it reopends after June 13th, that would be now.
