Trail Hazard Alert – Ice On Owens Trail

Owens Trail Ice

Ice On The Trail

BFR friend Mike Freiberger sent us a note warning us of some dangerous ice conditions on the Owens Trail just west of the bridge (GPS coordinates N32.985141,W-96.690661). Based on these coordinates, it’s the part of the trail between Lookout Park and Sherrill Park Golf Course. According to the city, the problem is a drainage issue. The Parks and Recreation Department is assessing how best to rectify the drainage problem. Very soon the problem will be corrected.

Until then, with these freezing days ahead of us, please be careful out there. Watch out for ice, not only on the Owens Trail, but anywhere water might be collected. If you see any hazards within the city parks or trail system, please let the city know.
