A Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve trail linking with Mountain View will be closed on Tuesday afternoon and possibly on Wednesday while crews inspect a failing flood gate that caused a mosquito invasion in 2012.

Is a larger map of the detour available? Can't see any details on this map. Thank you.

The map does not show the dam. If you double click it will open larger. Look for the "Sailing Station". Just to the right and slightly below "Station" you will see the Adobe Creek Trail take a 90-degree right turn onto the levy. The dam is right where the slight notch is. You will need to go along East Bayshore Road (in front of the Animal Shelter) to the creek just before San Antonio Road.

So the problem with mosquitoes was 2012 and they are only now getting round to fixing it???????

This must be quite quick for Palo Alto, I suppose.
