Water and muddy conditions on trail path would require intense, heavy rainfall several days repeated a day or so before. Events will happen rain or shine...only cancelled for hurricane or lightning. Understand that most rain takes a path around the campground. 12 month Negative Coggins Required at Campground Front Gate. Campsites, facilities and most trails are available at all times. $5 day ride fee or free with paid campsite for both trails and facility use.
