Superintendent Cathleen Cook has issued a temporary closure of all walking and horse trails within the Chickamauga Battlefield unit of the park.
The closure of the Chickamauga Battlefield trails will reduce the potential for visitor injury from falling trees and other trail hazards. This action will provide protection for visitors and allow for damage assessment and tree removal to be conducted more effectively.
Access to the trails will be limited to authorized individuals involved in trail clean-up operations.
This closure is effective immediately and will continue until the trails are made safe for public access.
For more information contact facility manager Don Stephenson at 423-752-5213 extension 125.
