Update Aug. 4, 2021: Custer Gallatin National Forest has reported that repairs on the Durnam and Markley (Deer Creek or “Green Bridge”) have been pushed back due to delays obtaining necessary materials for the project. The contractor is hoping to reschedule mid to late September, and more information about the bridge closure will be provided as soon as possible.

- On Aug. 2, the Twin Cabin trailhead road access bridge will be closed from 7:30 p.m. until midnight while the area’s homeowners association completes maintenance on the bridge.
