The popular trail at Chautauqua Park has experienced heavy erosion over the years. It was closed in April.

Officials with the city’s Open Space & Mountain Parks completed many projects, including installing an 18-foot bridge to help hikers pass through the area safely. In May, the city planned to build a new staircase to the route.
