Burning Rock trails closed for storm repairs

The trail system at Burning Rock Outdoor Adventure Park will be closed for at least 30 days while repairs are made to trails damaged from the summer derecho and the recent winter storm.

Director of Marketing Lisa Gale said multiple trees were downed and there were erosion issues.

“Even though we had folks on site working to repair the trails, there was so much damage they could never get caught up,” Gale said.

“We just decided it would be best to shut the trails down so we could get the big equipment in needed to get the trails back to the safe standards they were before.”

For those with trail riding permits, a sticker can be obtained for an additional month’s worth of riding time after repairs are complete.

Gale said to check the Burning Rock website for hours of operation, as the winter seasonal hours are now in effect.

If for some reason repairs take longer than a month, trail riders will receive additional riding time, Gale said.

“Our folks have done a great job of trying to maintain the trails, but with so much damage we wanted to focus on this more intently. We want everyone to be safe.”

Cabin rentals are still available and the zipline system is still operating.
