Yes we've had some rain, however our trails handle a bit of rain really well.

Generally the trails are still in awesome condition, so get down here.

So the word is...
FORREST IS OPEN!

 

Some have and some haven't... but until you have you just won't know what you are missing.

So, don't wait till summer is back, get down here NOW...
