It's time again for thinning of timber at Huntington Beach State Park as part of wildfire mitigation efforts. As a result, sections of the Waccamaw Bikeway running through the park will be temporarily closed beginning early next week.
Barriers will be set up to mark the areas where closures are taking place. During the last closure, we saw many riders simply go around the barriers. This is a serious safety issue as log trucks will be operating in the area. Cyclists should not move or try to go around barriers for their own safety and the safety of others.
