BIKE TRAILS ARE CLOCKWISE for December 2016.
due to Frequent trail closures in the Summertime, we will not be changing the signs every month. Most riders are aware that CRP is claybased dirt from the River and the bike park often floods or is too slippery to ride in the summertime.
Our summertime forumula: For every 1/2 inch of rain, bike path requires 1 0r 2 dry days for trail to be rideable.
Information on trail conditions or if park is open or closed is posted on County Website...go to: www.leeparks.org . If you need more immediate info please call the CRP managers office : 239-694-0398
