Why are a number of trails on Morris Bridge closed? Indian and Gator Bait.
I recently rode on the Indian trail (got on it in the middle of the trail, not the start nor end, no signs) and arrived at the end of the trail with posts saying the trail is closed. Why wasn't there a sign saying it was closed in the middle of the trail?
The trail seemed fine to me, a bit watery which I do enjoy since it gives a bit more variety to the terrain.
The only way in to Indian right now without going around a post is through an unmarked branch of Grandpa....It is pretty overgrown and frankly not ridden much at all, but it is in clear view of an entrance to that trail that is marked closed.
I assume that this is where you went it.
Without repeating what everyone has already stated. There are trails in all of the local systems that are seasonal trails. Indian and Gatorbait are two of them. They will probably be closed for a few more weeks as we are getting closed to the end of rainy season. We go through this every summer.
I ask that you respect the trail closures as they are intended to preserve to trails for the long term. It is not asking alot for you to reroute your ride at Wilderness. There are well over 25 miles of trail to ride there.
Please do not ride closed trails. I assure you we will reopen them as soon as it makes sense to do so.
