    Some good news for Double Lake

    Trails had been closed for awhile due to the USFS's beliefs of a falling tree hazard. Major work was done by the USFS for tree removal with encouragement and support from GHORBA The original Double Lake trail is now open, use caution for debris on the trail and help move some of it to the side please.

    The press release does not seem to distinguish between original and new trails.

    The original trail is officially referred to as the Double Lake Mountain Bike Trail, the other trails all have their own names, and are also outside the recreation area.

    "Trail sections open in the Sam Houston National Forest include:
    -- Double Lake Mountain Bike Trail in Double Lake Recreation Area."

    The new trails are not "in" Double Lake R.A..

    But it also said "Double Lake Mountain Bike Trail in the Sam Houston National Forest is open"

    So now I'm confused. Can we ride the "new" trails?
