Harwood's Mill trails disruptions

Harwood's riders - some (temporary) bad news. Dominion will be tearing down the old wooden power towers between the "A" and "B" trails and replacing them with steel towers. This is going to cause some disruption over the summer.

Starting this weekend (12-13 June), that section of the "A" trail after the B02 bailout sign will be closed to allow tree-cutting crews to clear some of the right-of-way along Multi Use Trail 2 (MU2) beginning on Monday, 14 June. Riders will have to exit "A" at B02. There will be a barrier.

The current entrance to the "B" trail will likewise be temporarily closed. Riders exiting A on B02 should continue down MU1, cross MU2 using the gravel road, and pick up the "B" trail at the treeline across the power line field. A new, temporary, trail will be established. There will be signs.

Expect a lot of heavy equipment disruptions on the MU trails throughout this summer. Once Dominion is finished, then we should be able to continue normal use on both A, B, and MU trails
