Expect fallen trees on some park trails - 6/4/15
A high wind event this winter fell an unprecendented number of trees. It will take all summer to clear trails of downed trees. Please use caution while navigating through the fallen trees and expect trails that have not been cleared to take up to double the time to travel through.
Special Note for Equestrian Riders
Equestrian riders are encouraged to only travel on trails which have been cleared of fallen trees. Please do not off-trail travel. Call 530-595-4480 for the most up-to-date information.
