Trail Reopening Information
Thu, May 07 12:00 AM - Tue, Jun 30 11:59 PM
As many of you are aware, the County’s Department of Public Health is issuing a Five Stage Roadmap to Recovery with a phased approach to relaxing select directives to the Safer at Home Order. As part of Stage Two, our public trails are expected to reopen soon. It is anticipated that many trails will be open and available to the public beginning Saturday May 9th as outlined below for all trails that are list on this website.
***PLEASE CHECK WITH LOCAL JURISDICTIONS FOR TRAILS NOT LISTED ON THIS SITE THAT ARE OPERATED BY OTHER CITIES AND AGENCIES (SEE MORE INFO AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE)
It is imperative that all trail users make it their personal responsibility to follow all trail user requirements to help protect the health of themselves and others, AND to help keep trails open!!! If trails become crowded and the public does not abide by the critical trail safety practices required, there is a risk that trails will be closed again.
