The Nature Trail Loop, Oak Trail and Dick Loskorn Trail have been closed for your safety until further notice.

The trails contain many dead and dying oak and sycamore trees as a result of continuing drought conditions. These trees pose a serious threat to all trail users.

Closing these trails serves two purposes. In addition to keeping visitors away from hazards, the closures offer the best chances for the groves to recover.

Other hiking trail options in this area include the eastern section of Nature Trail Loop, Bell CanyonTrail, Quail Run Trail, Star Rise Trail, and West Ridge Trail.
