Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS -

BELLA VISTA — The Bella Vista Fire De­part­ment will do con­trolled burns on ar­eas of the Back 40 trails dur­ing March and early April.

Trail users can ex­pect clos­ings, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

The Tay­lor Home­stead Trail from Beth­nal Road west to the trail’s in­ter­sec­tion with the SBAT Trail is closed and will re­main closed un­til fur­ther no­tice. The sec­tion was closed to in­ves­ti­gate a po­ten­tial hazard on the trail. The trail has been de­ter­mined to be safe to use, but will re­main closed un­til the burns are fin­ished.

Start­ing Wednes­day, the Flo- ride trail from York Drive to Castle­ford Drive will be closed un­til fur­ther no­tice.

Other clos­ings can be ex­pected pe­ri­od­i­cally on the fol­low­ing trail sec­tions:

Back 40 Loop from Buck­ing­ham Trail­head to Lake Ann dam ( for a burn in the area where the trail ap­proaches Bella Vista Way at Trafal­gar Road). Look­out Trail. Brit­tany Dam Tra i l , on Pinyon Creek Trail be­tween SBAT to the Back 40 Loop.

Trail users should use cau­tion in these ar­eas dur­ing March and April, and watch for signs and bar­ri­cades de­not­ing trail clos­ings. All trail clos­ings will be posted in ad­vance.
