Trail Closure - Big Finn Hill Park "South"

To protect public safety, the trail in this part of the park is closed due to a fallen tree that caused severe damage to the trail bridge. We are exploring options to remove the tree and repair the bridge and trail, but anticipate a closure of several months. We'll post updates here and to the e-newsletter when we have further information.
