Due to damage from Hurricane Florence, some bridges have sustained damages, making a few trails impassable. The bridge to Holden Mill Trail is closed until further notice. There is an alternate route to the Holden Mill Trail. Please inquire at the park office. Some trails may have remaining debris, so please exercise caution when you are out on the trails.Last updated on: Thursday, June 6, 2019
