Lowes Creek CLOSED for thaw and Skull Closed for repairs

by jaylauraplummer on March 16, 2017

Spring is almost here so that means it’s time to stay off from our trail systems.  Eau Claire County Parks and Forest has closed all singletrack at Lowes Creek County park to ALL users (bike, foot, paw, boot, running shoe).  We will be watching conditions and will announce once the trails are ready to go.

Also, SKULL, has been closed indefinitely until a re-route/repair can be planned and constructed.  The winter conditions took a toll on the boardwalk and retaining wall. The trail is closed to ALL use even after the spring thaw.

We appreciate everyone’s attention to trail conditions on all of our systems, whether officially closed or not.  Ruts left mean volunteers need to spend time repairing them – time that would be better spent riding  THANK YOUTrails Closed sign

Thank You and Welcome
