|Old Dewey Road is along tree line|
Tom writes,"I have color coded my image to better explain":
The yellow dots show the new road that will come off of Winslow Hill Rd and turn left just before the current viewing area pull-off. This will then connect to the lower part of Dewey Rd just above the old Gilbert Farm and will allow access to the rest of Dewey Rd.
The large Gray area is the new parking area that looks to be at least double the size of the current one. To get into that parking area you will need to follow the new access road also dotted with Yellow.
The Orange dots show the current Dewey road and parking area that will no longer exist".
The photo below is likely the the general location of the first viewing area , while the second or lower viewing area would be just beyond the end of the row of tall trees to the right.
|Likely location of upper viewing area and with restroom facilities closeby|
|Lower viewing area is likely somewhat past where road emerges from tree line|
I have also been told that work on this is to begin in Mid-October. Also it seems likely the PGC will take a much more active role in the tourism aspect of the elk program. There is a strong possibility that a maintenance crew headquarters will be established on Winslow Hill with the crew concentrating on maintaining the wildlife habitat and facilities in the area.
I must emphasize that this is my interpretation of what I have seen in writing and what I have been told. There is room for error or the plan may be fine-tuned and changed somewhat as it goes along.
