No Problem Geoff, you just didn't look at the date on the post that said they were open, it was from the 16th..
Since most of the SWAMP trail bosses rarely post in this forum, it is not the best place to get the most current trail information. You can get more information on the Wilderness Trails parks at [
site down] and also by joining the WTA yahoo group from that site. SWAMP and WTA also both have facebook pages that try and keep people up to date.
Also, if you join SWAMP you get access to the SWAMP yahoo group where they sometimes send out trail updates.
