Creek Overlook Boardwalk and Bridge 4 CLOSED Until Further Notice
Due to the aging condition of the wooden boardwalk that runs along Coffee Creek (Creek Overlook), the Staff and CCWC Board Of Directors have CLOSED the wooden boardwalk and Bridge 4 until sustainable repairs can be made. Due to the magnitude of the project, the boardwalk and Bridge will remain CLOSED until further notice.
Unauthorized entry into these closed areas is trespassing.
UPDATE: December, 2020
Preliminary work has begun on addressing the infrastructural needs of the wooden boardwalks. As detailed information becomes available, check back on social media and our website for up-to-date information!

UPDATE: March 10, 2021
An outside engineering and design firm is working with the Board of Directors and CCWC Staff to assess overall trail issues, and specifically, the Creek Overlook Boardwalk failures. An overall design plan (to include wooden boardwalk replacements, bridge assessments, long-term trail repairs, and overall guest experience to The Preserve, among other priorities) is being created at this time.
This design plan will allow the BOD and Staff to prioritize projects and target outside funding (donations and/or grant dollars) for these large scale, and expensive projects.
