Associated Press Associated Press 26/09/2016

SALEM, Ore. — An iconic pathway around Oregon's tallest mountain has fully reopened to the public.

The Statesman Journal reports ( ) that work on the Timberline Trail, a 41-mile circuit of Mount Hood, was completed last week. One section of the trail was re-routed and reconnected after being closed by a debris flow in 2006.

Forest engineering specialists decided to relocate the affected section of the trail after determining that a permanent bridge at the original location wasn't feasible.

Mount Hood National Forest officials said in a news release that hikers will once again be able to circumnavigate Mount Hood, travelling past waterfalls, meadows and forest along the way.
