Closure of Reedy Creek Lake Multi-Use Trail for Bridge Repair   

The Reedy Creek Lake multi-use trail and bridge at William B. Umstead State Park will close for repairs beginning November 29, 2018. This trail is the only connection to the multi-use trail system at the Reedy Creek entrance to the park. Repairs will include new decking, steel structural improvements and concrete abutments. The project is expected to take 45 days including installation of the new decking.
For safety reasons, no persons will be permitted to use the mutli-use trail or cross the bridge during the repairs. Visitors who wish to access the multi-use trail can enter the park through the Crabtree entrance at 8801 Glenwood Avenue. All other hiking trails and picnic facilities will remain open on the Reedy creek side of the park. Bicycles and horses are not permitted on hiking trails.
