    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Hopewell Park Danville - Temp Closure - must read

    PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION



    The Montour Area Recreation Commission (MARC) has announced a temporary closure of the trail network at the Hopewell Park/Danville Borough Farm property. Trails will be closed to all mountain bikers and other non-hunting trail users from Monday, December 1, through Saturday, December 13 – excluding Sunday, December 7 – to avoid conflicts with the regular antlered and antlerless deer seasons. Bob Stoudt, MARC Director, explained “we’ve been very pleased with how well the new trail system has been received. Bikers, hikers, hunters and other users have been able to share the site since the trails opened in September, but the regular deer seasons present a much greater potential for dangerous accidental conflicts. Though the trails will be open to all on Sunday, December 7, the trails will be closed to all users except hunters on the other days during this period.”



    Media Contact: Bob Stoudt, MARC Director – (570) 336-2060 or MontrRec@ptd.net

    Couldn't agree more.. ran into a hunter there during archery season, there were no bad vibes at all. He actually wished me "ride safe" as we parted.
    Nice job there!!
