WST Notice - Current Trail Issues

Posted Thursday, January 2, 2020 4:01pm

El Dorado Canyon from Deadwood to El Dorado Creek is also not currently safe for horses until trail repairs have been made.  This work is anticipated to take place sometime in May 2020.

The California Loop is now REOPENED and is available for training purposes.

The trails team has trained trail stewards in place who are organizing to fix these locations and we will notify you when these repairs have been made. 

Thank you for respecting the trails and staying safe!
