Please Report Feral Hog Damage HERE
Repairs have started on the concrete bridge this afternoon (3/18/19). The rails will be taken down next and barricades placed on either end of the bridge. Students should take the side trail to Tree Lane going to school in the morning and thereafter until further notice. THIS BRIDGE WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
NOTE: The pedestrian
bridge at the end of Park Garden Drive, between the middle school and
church, is scheduled to be closed this week, perhaps as early as
Tuesday, May 13th, or Wednesday, depending on the weather. Pedestrians may still cross the channel at Sandy Forks Drive.
Get to know the community, walk the trails, enjoy the outdoors, and
please keep your pets on leashes.
Ride Friendly – Bicyclists should give an audible warning before overtaking pedestrians. A simple statement such as “passing on your left (right)” will do. A bicycle bell is a traditional signal.
Ride Safely – The Texas Code of Laws says that anyone under the age of 18 MUST wear head protection while riding a bicycle; it’s a good idea for everyone.
Cell Phone Tips - If you need emergency assistance while on our trails keep in mind that 911 call takers cannot always locate your exact location from a cell phone. We and our sister trails have marked the block numbers of the streets by our trail entrances to help Emergency Services respond quickly. A trail fire can swiftly endanger homes, let the call taker know that a “trail fire is in progress” and give them the closest hundred block street number. Only HFD Booster trucks can extinguish fires in our wooded areas.
Be Thoughtful – Please take your trash home or place it in one of the trash receptacles located on the trails. A special thanks to all those conscientious walkers who carry plastic bags to pick up debris on the trail that has been carelessly discarded.
