Monthly TRAIL CONDITION report – August 2019...

For a better workout, find a trail that takes your breath away

Entire Trail is open – No planned trail closures are scheduled in August. In the event of an unexpected closure, signage will be placed before and after to notify trail users. For your safety, do not go around signs and barricades.   

East of the Kodak Bridge, at mile marker W-8.75, there is a detour where trail users will leave the concrete path for a very short distance, detouring around a flood damaged section. The detour may be soft and muddy. Please use caution. Dismounting is recommended.

Dirt road crossing – Approximately 1 mile west of Eastman Park in Windsor the trail crosses a dirt access road. This road can be muddy or have deep ruts. Please cross with caution. Dismounting is recommended.

Highway 257 crossing. Use caution at all road crossings, with high alert at this high-speed highway. Assume cars will not stop. Do not let the crossing lights give you a false sense of security.

Ecosystem restoration at Signature Bluffs – Now open.

Come Prepared – Bring plenty of drinking water for hot summer days. Water availability is limited along the Trail. During the summer season, sunscreen and bug spray is also suggested.

Mowing - Mowers will yield to pedestrians and bicyclists, but please allow time for the operator to see you first and shut down the spinning blades before passing mowing equipment. Natural areas are managed to maintain and strengthen non-irrigated native grass species. This practice is different from neighborhood park settings.
