Erie Singletrack Closure Protocols

Community Spotlight Image - Singletrack Closure Protocol

Staff will enact closures if the following criteria are met: wet/muddy conditions present, snowy/icy conditions present, Division maintenance operations, and/or Town-permitted special event.

Just because the trails may look dry from the road, this may not be the case on key trail sections that are shaded from the sun. Ignoring closures will prolong the length of time necessary for the closure and those caught violating closures will be subject to fines. Please help do your part, respect this resource, and have patience until the trails are safe to open.

  • Peak Usage Months (March through November) - Staff will assess trail conditions on a daily basis at 7 a.m. and post the status of the trails if there is a change in the closure status. 
  • Winter Months (December through February) - Staff will assess conditions less frequently than during peak usage months. Staff will assess and post closures on an as needed or weekly basis. 
  • Staff will not implement partial closures – Entire trail closures will be enacted if any conditions are present that meet the established trail closure protocols. If closures are enacted, they will remain in effect for a minimum of a 24 hour period from the time that they were last assessed.
