Hunting Season is ON at Forks of the River

Dove season began at Forks of the River WMA on September 1. Perimeter trails (Whaley/Bluff by the river and West Perimeter) are OPEN to cyclists/foot traffic, but please avoid the inner trails at Forks. Give hunters their space (their permits pay for the management of the land we share!) and please don’t get yourself shot. Trails will reopen to all users in May 2020.
