Title: West Branch St. Park trails
Post by: Charlie Redwood on September 23, 2017, 12:49:23 PM
The Buckeye Trail between the park office and horseman's campground are getting ruined by horse traffic.  Ankle twisting hoof divots abound, horse droppings frequently are obstacles to be avoided, and many sections are getting turned into septic swamps containing horse urine and fecal matter that lead to tedious shoe cleaning.  More signage is needed to aware equestrians they are on designated hiking only trails.
It is ironic and unfortunate the new red and yellow horseman's trails are smoother than our Buckeye Trail.
