Cowiche Canyon and Snow Mountain Ranch trails are OPEN. Please note: Most Rocky Top trails are currently open. However, Single track trails within the William O. Douglas Natural Resource Conservation Area remain CLOSED due to erosion damage — EXCEPT for the William O. Douglas ridge top trail connecting Rock Top and Snow Mountain Ranch, which remains OPEN. Please respect trail closures. Closures are for the long-term health of the trails. Closed trails can reopen once the erosion is able to be fixed or addressed within the WOD Conservation Area
