Due to hazardous conditions we have been forced to close a section of the primitive trail in the Dow Centennial Bottomlands Park. Unfortunately, erosion has caused portions of the primitive trail be undercut and disappear into the river. The bank in this area continues to be unstable. For you own safety, please do not go past the barricades. The paved Monica Brown trail is not affected and remains open for your enjoyment.
