Restrictions in place for Staire Creek Trail

Equestrians and bikers who enjoy the Staire Creek Trail in the Big Ivy Area of the Pisgah National Forest will have to wait until spring to use the trail, due to delays in completion of maintenance work there. 

The U.S. Forest Service had started a significant maintenance project on the trail’s upper portion this fall but will not be able to finish it until early spring. Until then it’s not safe for horseback or mountain bike riders, though hikers may still use the trail. The restriction is scheduled to last through March 1, 2016, though it may be extended if necessary.
