Sugar Bottom Closed due to Govt Shutdown

Postby Rage » Tue Oct 01, 2013 1:01 pm

Just received updated information from the Rangers regarding the US Government Shutdown: Sugar Bottom is closed to all users - disc golf, hikers, bikers, etc. As the trails are now closed, anyone found on the trails will be subject to a fine. We'll keep you updated on the status as it changes.

Rg.

ps. Plenty of local rides not under Federal control remain open and sweet to ride.

The Rangers enforce the trail closures, not ICORR. That being said, the Rangers have asked us to respect the closed trails status and we intend to do so. Our good working relationship with them has helped the trails continue to be some of the best in the area, and we don't want to jeopardize that. This is a tough situation for all involved. As riders, we can just think of this as a rain closure - at least we're not on unpaid leave. As with other trail closures, please continue to demonstrate the good stewardship that has been shown in the past. Thank you for making the best of a bad deal.

Please be aware that the Sugar Bottom trail closure will remain in effect until we are notified otherwise by the Army Corps of Engineers. Someone has been rigging the back lot sign to show open - this is assuredly not the case. Please don't jeopardize our access to this resource by tampering with these signs or riding closed trails. We'll let you know as soon as the trails are allowed to open. Thank you for your understanding.

Sugar Bottom has reopened! Please use caution on the early rides as there has been no maintenance or patrols to take care of any downed limbs or trees. Enjoy!
