Work to close areas starting Monday

The Kula Forest Reserve, Waipoli Access Road, the Papa’anui Tract of the Kahikinui Forest Reserve and the Polipoli Spring State Recreation Area will be closed Monday through Oct. 13, the state Department of Land and Natural Resources has announced.

The areas will be closed for two weeks to allow for scheduled road and trail repairs, road safety improvements and other work.

Any forest or park permits for Polipoli Spring State Recreation Area during that period are being canceled. All roads, hunting areas, trails, facilities and activities – including hiking, biking, camping and hunting – will be affected by the closures.

The Waipoli Access Road will be closed from the “white gate” to the Skyline Trailhead gate.
