The trail along the river at Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area is quite hazardous, with mud and debris. We do not recommend hiking this trail.Posted on: Tuesday, September 18, 2018
Although we have opened our gates, the following cautions apply: The riverside trails have been underwater for days. The water is receding, but these trails are exceedingly muddy, with lots of debris. We do not reccomend hiking on these trails. The trails that do not run beside the river will be in much better condition. Please be careful while in the park!Posted on: Tuesday, September 18, 2018
