Due to ongoing ordnance removal, the Lake Johnson Fairforest Creek Connector Trail and McFadden Road are closed to the public Monday-Friday until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Advance America Bridge to access the Southside Trail system washed away during a flood in February. Until the bridge is replaced, the only way to access the Southside Trail system is by the Southside Park located off of Groce Road. To get to Southside Park from within the park, drive out of the park, turn left onto Dairy Ridge Road, turn left onto Highway 56, and then after about 3 miles, turn left onto Groce Road. The Southside Park is at the end of Groce Road.
Please be aware: Federal regulations require that any time a horse crosses state lines, a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (aka Health Certificate) is required. This can be either a 30 day certificate or an Extended Equine Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (EECVI), which has a duration of six months.
