In June of this summer, the Forest Service was making plans to reopen Locust Stake in early July, 2013. They began by doing maintenance work, and GARTRA was allowed to resume workdays there. But due to the extreme wet conditions we've experienced this spring and summer, the maintenance operations were not . As a result, the the opening of Locust Stake ORV park has been postponed until the normal seasonal opening in March, 2014. However, if you want to participate in a Workday, contact Frank Spencer (GARTRA Trail Captain) at 770-533-2222.
