Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 4 Not happy with the spraying on the road by Brenda Howard
We drive over the trail serveral times a year and was disappointed to discover that the sides of the banks along the road had be sprayed with weed killer as fare as up into trees. The 2 foot along the road was not sprayed. In spraying they killed a fringed orcid that is on the watched list.\ Maybe next year they will think of other places to spray besides the trail.
