Once the sunny and dry weather arrives again, you may want to hit our trails right away but WAIT! Using trails when they are soft and muddy causes erosion and long term trail damage - leading to more maintenance and more trail closures. Please help us in keeping our trails safe and preserved - keep away from muddy trails! #micdrop #thankyouforcomingtomytedtalk #trails #nature #BMX #mountainbiking #SLparks
