Staple Bend Tunnel Trail Open, Staple Bend Tunnel Close
The Staple Bend Tunnel is closed until further notice, but the Staple Bend Tunnel trail is open for use. Again, the tunnel, NOT THE TRAIL, is closed.
Please be aware that part of the public area loop has been closed until further notice as the park starts preparatory efforts for this summer's paving project on the Picnic Area Road.
