Martha’s Falls Trail at Lit­tle River Canyon re­opens af­ter fire

Cherokee County Herald - - SPORTS -

Lit­tle River Canyon Na­tional Pre­serve is re­open­ing the Martha’s Falls Trail af­ter the large fire.

You must stay on the estab­lished trails.

Vis­i­tors are not per­mit­ted to en­ter the burned ar­eas off trails for their own safety.

The in­te­ri­ors of the burned ar­eas con­tain nu­mer­ous hid­den stump holes, and snags that may fall at any time.

Some of the stump holes may have hot coals and step­ping into them would cause se­vere burns with pos­si­ble bro­ken bones.

Some fire per­son­nel are still at the park. Do not in­ter­fere with their op­er­a­tions.

Stay away from fire per­son­nel ac­tiv­i­ties for your own safety.

The park is still as­sess­ing the ef­fects of the fire on park re­sources.

Base­line re­sources data is sparse in the area af­fected.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call Larry Beane at 256 845- 9605 ex­ten­sion 205. You can fol­low our up­dates and find park pic­tures on Face­book at “lir­inps.”

Park Su­per­in­ten­dent Steve Black in­vites the pub­lic to come out and en­joy the park.

The CCERA ( Re­tired Teach­ers) will hold their meet­ing to­day at Lanny’s at 11 a.m.

There will be a brief busi­ness meet­ing but the main em­pha­sis will be on hon­or­ing our vet­er­ans for their ser­vice to our great coun­try. A spe­cial speaker and spe­cial pa­tri­otic mu­sic will high­light the pro­gram!

Ev­ery­one is in­vited to come and bring a fel­low re­tiree.
