Big Cypress National Preserve Superintendent Karen Gustin announced that effective Friday, August 3, 2007 the off-road vehicle (ORV) trails within the Preserve will reopen to all recreational permitted users. The trails are reopening after a sixty-day closure that began in June. The closure is required under the Preserve's ORV Management Plan to allow for a resting period of reduced ORV use within the area. Superintendent Gustin said, "With the reopening of the trail system, we hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable ORV season."
