Hiking and Horse Trail Closures   

Three Rivers Trail remains closed from storm damage, bridge washouts and bank erosion. 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 will need to be redesigned and rerouted to make them safe again for visitors.
