All single-track trails at DuPont State Recreational Forest will be closed, effective at 12:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 20, 2019. With rain off and on over recent days combined with rain forecasted for the next four days, soil conditions are saturated and susceptible to damage. Trail surfaces are soft so that foot traffic, bicycles and equestrian users will cause erosion issues and rutting.
Forest roads and graveled two-track trails such as High Falls Loop, Triple Falls Trail and Hooker Falls Trail will remain open as conditions allow.
During your visit, please pay attention to signage or barricades related to the trail closures. Be aware that all trails, even those that are not closed, may have debris and slippery conditions so use them at your own risk.
Forest officials will monitor conditions for improvement and re-opening for next week.
We appreciate the public’s cooperation and support to stay off of single-track trails.
To report trail problems or for questions call the Forest Supervisor at 828-877-6527.
Help support us in preserving DuPont Forest for all to enjoy.
