PILOT MOUNTAIN STATE PARK WEATHER FORECAST: http://tinyurl.com/d4qve9pEquestrians
- To preserve park bridle trails for your continued use and enjoyment, all trails are closed to horses after rain. Riding on wet trails creates hazardous areas and erodes the trail. Riding trails when wet will cause their closure for maintenance and their closure to bridle use. If it has rained, wait to ride another day.

If you would like to receive electronic notification of prescribed burns, the park would like to ask you for an email address that you can be reached at. Your email will not be shared with anyone, and you will not be included on “reply-alls” or routine emails from the park. This list-serve would only be used for notification of prescribed fires or emergencies. Prior to a planned prescribed burn you will receive an email and a location of the burn within the state park. If at anytime you would like to be removed from this email list you would have the option to have your contact information deleted by calling or emailing the park.When prescribed burns are conducted, areas of the park being burned are closed to the public during the burn, and afterwards until conditions are deemed safe for use.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to this listserve.
