These projects will improve water quality, ensure better protection to a variety of species that live in the areas streams, and also improve visitor safety.

These trails will be closed to public travel from Monday, August 27, through Friday, August 31, 2012.

For further information, or if you have any questions about temporary trail closures related to these activities, please contact Wally Linder at (423) 569-2404, ext. 321.
