The Knobstone Trail traverses actively managed forest areas and will have periodic temporary reroutes for user safety during management activities. Check the list below for current routing alerts.

  • The Jackson Road Trailhead is under construction. Improvements include brushing back roadside vegetation and improving and adding stone to the existing access road and parking area. The trailhead is expected to be closed over the next 2-3 weeks while improvements are made.
