Section of forest's Birdseye Trail temporarily closedMay 6, 2020
From Local Sources
The USDA Forest Service has temporarily closed a section of the Hoosier National Forest's Birdseye Trail in Dubois and Crawford counties for visitor safety during forest management activities in the area.
The closure order states that the following areas are ordered closed until termination of this emergency closure order or 120 days from the signature date, whichever comes first: The section of Birdseye Trail located in T3S, R2W, sections 5 and 6 and T2S, R2W, sections 31 and 32 in Crawford County; T2S, R3W, section 36 in Dubois County
The rest of the Birdseye Trail remains open. Management activities are focused on the removal of non-native pine in the area to promote restoration of native hardwoods, and the creation of critical young forest habitat for wildlife that depend on those conditions.
Use caution and pay attention to your surroundings while you enjoy recreation at the Hoosier National Forest. For more information about closure orders on the Hoosier National Forest, click here.
