Main Trail Is Closed

My husband and our dog went to walk this trail and didn’t see any closed or orange tape so we ended up getting lost and a bicyclist stopped us and pointed us home. We did see a big Easter Diamond back rattle snake. That was cool. However we did have a great time and ended up walking 6.6 miles
