DOUGLAS COUNTY TRAIL UPDATE 2/04/2020
Currently ALL of Douglas County trails are open.
Please check the attached map for which trails are currently open. It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to utilize their property, so please verify that the trail you intend to use is open at this time.
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 so they can adjust their plans as needed to avoid the closed portion.
I have attached a trail map which outlines the open trails.
