Lower 0.7 mile section of Saddle Loop Trail Closed: The lower part of the Saddle Loop Trail is closed. A 0.7 mile section of this trail will take additional time due to the location on a layer of shale bedrock. Thank you for your patience and understanding while forestry staff complete the construction work.
