We received word that there is a prescribed burn by the Forest Service planned for Friday, February 10th. They will be burning on Adams Knob (near Loose Mountain) and will need to close Lower Wilson Ridge (from Hwy 90 to Wilson Creek) during the burn. They hope to have it finished and back open on Saturday. Please respect any trail closures and select alternate routes. It's greatly appreciated.
