A three-mile stretch of the Neal Smith biking and hiking trail is closed for repairs.
The trail is closed from the Sycamore access to Morningstar Drive in Polk County. Part of the trail has severe stream bank erosion, undercutting the asphalt path.
The old trail will be removed and recycled as a base for a new trail. Crews will stabilize the eroding stream bank.
Because of the heavy equipment, you should avoid this section of the Neal Smith Trail.
Repairs should be done in late October.
