Temporary closures at SanFelasco
« on: September 21, 2010, 04:33:18 PM »
Press Release for San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park Aerial Herbicide Application
 
FYI:             Between Sept 21 and early October 2010, hikers, horseback riders and off-road cyclists who visit San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park can expect to see a significant resource management project underway. Bike and equestrian trails in northern portions of the preserve will be closed for up to 24 hours during and after the aerial application of herbicide. The aerial application is needed for removal of weeds and exotic grasses in old pastures prior to longleaf pine replanting, which is a part of the preserve’s overall restoration efforts.

From Randy Brown, park manager:
The spraying will occur during a weekday, so hopefully few visitors will be affected.  It will affect a portion of Tung Nut Loop in the open areas near the old dairy, and the area near Itchy Bottom Lake.  So during that day, except for Cellon Creek Loop and Cottontail trail, the trail system will be closed. 
We will be posting signs at both the bike and horse trailheads prior to and the day of the spraying and at the entrance to the affected trails the day of the spraying.  The trails have to remain closed for 12 hours after the herbicide application, so by the next morning, they can be re-opened.

WOW... 5 SAG stops for a 50 mile ride??  I am going to get FAT-er eating so much.  LMAO...
 
BTW, the SanFelasco website says 8am but the sportsonline say 6am.  I'll be up at 5:55 trying to register.  I am glad they finally got with current times and do an online registration after so many years.  It was crazy with the mail thing.  now with online, it is going to get sold out within hours.  Do NOT procrastinate.  Actually, do procrastinate, more chances for me to get into one of the 2nd koolest FIDDY in the state.  (Croom Fiddy 1st)
 
Race starts at 8am don't be late.   ;D     Oh, metric century option again this year.  Be ready for icy conditions like always.
