Landslides at the Fleener Creek Trailhead have been ‘ongoing’ since January, according to the Bureau of Land Management.

Significant winter storms hit the state on January 18 and the trail was closed down to visitors for safety purposes.

‘Fleener Creek parking lot gave away to mother nature last night and a good portion of it is now in the ocean,’ Humboldt County 1st District Supervisor Rex Bohn said on Facebook on Saturday, February 24.

‘It is unsafe to use the parking lot at this time or to even walk in it,’ Bohn continued ‘This is not an invitation to go look. It is a dangerous situation.’

The area is being patrolled by sheriff’s deputies and Ferndale police as it continues to be closed to the public.

Saturday’s landslide happened just a few weeks after a similar incident happened in Southern California.
