Chattahoochee National Forest Closures

Post by keetmanaa » Mon Jul 02, 2018 4:53 pm

Anyone planning a holiday forest service ride in the southern portion of this forest take note that there are many roads closed due to a week long (7/2 - 7/7 "encampment" by thousands from the Rainbow Family. (Google Rainbow Family Dahlonega for the latest info).

We’ve had the Drainbows invade us several times in Central Orygun. My condolences. To their credit, they did leave the forest in impecable shape via amazingly thorough clean-up crews.

That's encouraging. I spend a lot of time in the National Forest and would hate to see it requiring a long time to recover.
