All bridle trails have been deemed unsafe and thus CLOSED until further notice due to severe damage to the trail surface caused from heavy rainfall during Hurricane Florence. These damaged trail sections are currently being redesigned and rerouted to make them safe again for visitors. Professional trail builders are currently working on temporary repairs with plans to get several of the trail sections open before the fall season.Last updated on: Tuesday, August 6, 2019
