    FATS closed?

    Just saw a picture of tape across the trail at FATS. With the 7" plus rain in the last couple of weeks, looks like it is closed.

    I haven't been out there in weeks because....well...rain. But the twitter feed says that the entrances have been taped so I guess, yes it's closed.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    Yep, FATS at both the north and south trailheads are taped off. I heard they will be putting up signs too. Don't ride FATS until further notice. Poachers beware. Keep up to date with conditions at FATS by following FATSUpdate

    The tape was removed from FATS ealier in the week. However, lower portions of Skinny and Great Wall are still taped off. These two trails stay wet longer then the rest. Also this past week Tuesday-Thursday (March 5-7) the National Forest Service had control burns in the area. I do not believe the trails themselves were burned but areas near Tower and Big Rock were burned and the area had a lot of hot spots, smoldering logs/stumps, flare-ups, and smoke reducing visibility as of last night when I took a quick drive over to see the area.
