The bridge just north of the main branch of Craig Creek within the Brush Mountain East Wilderness (NOBO mile ~689.5) has been closed due to structural issues and an alternate route has been marked with pink flagging for visitors to follow. The primary bridge over the main branch of Craig Creek remains open.
