A. J. JOLLY PARK VOLUNTARY TRAIL CLOSURE
WELCOME TRAIL RIDERS
Trails will Open March 29, thru November 24, 2013 (Weather Permitting) and Will Not be Closed. We ask that all trail riders do not ride if the trail is very wet and muddy conditions exist. The indentation from the horse hoof has a container effect which holds the water. This will make it harder for the trail to dry out!
If you encounter a muddy spot on the trail please do not go around it, go thru it. Going around will make the spot larger.
These trails are maintained by volunteers from the Northern Kentucky Horse Network, Inc. and we ask for your support!
Policy adopted by the NKHN Trail Committee June 28, 2011
