Guidelines for updating: Anyone may make an update for any trail. You should make updates if you know the true status by either having been to the trail/park, read an email update from the park staff, or have phoned the park and obtained the status. If you have found that incorrect updates have been made, please note the trail and date/time and notify and correct the false entries. If the last updated time is relatively old, it would be a good idea to update the status even if the status is unchanged.

Additional Information: 9 times out of 10, this item should be empty. However, there are circumstances which warrant additional information about the trail condition beyond a simple open/closed. This includes listing any trail sections that should be avoided. Appropriate example: first loop is very muddy and should be avoided. Appropriate example: the trail is open but a race is scheduled, so be advised that traffic is expected to be heavy.
Inappropriate entries include, but are not limited to, random comments, plugs for events, or anything not related to the trail condition. Inappropriate example: Called office Inappropriate example: According to message Inappropriate example: Per email Inappropriate example: this trail rocks! Inappropriate example: trail is dry and good to go. In this last example, the OPEN status would suffice.

In order to make updates to the trail status, you must first sign in to the forum. Once you sign into the forum, just come back to this page (or refresh) to make the trail status update. If you do not have a forum account, you may create one here. Sorry for the extra step, but there have been too many deliberately false updates.

Light weight trail status
To better support mobile devices, we have released a light weight trail status page. This page displays a quick summary of our current trail status without the rich features used on our home page and trail status update page. In addition to this page, we are also reiterating that the additional information data for a trail status should only be used when there is important information that cannot be covered with a simple open/closed status. Thanks for helping us keep and display accurate and relevant trail status information!
