DOUGLAS COUNTY TRAIL UPDATE 3/6/2020.
Douglas county received a little bit of snow yesterday and currently ALL of Douglas County trails are open. As temperatures start to warm up watch for trail closures in the update.
It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to utilize their property.
We will provide updates as conditions change. Deer have been reported on trails so keep an eye out while traveling.
Please share this info with anyone that you believe would be interested…our goal is to inform as many trail riders as possible.
I have attached a trail map which outlines the open trails.
