Trail Status
Lercher 15 Mountain Bike Trails Basic Info:

**NOTE:Trails are set to Re-Open October 12. 
All riders/trail users new & old will be required to sign new waivers before riding/using trails. There will still be some closed trails as well as some new re-routed sections. Please give us time to get everything back up to speed.  There is a new trailhead map showing where the pipeline went through. You might want to take a picture of it for reference.  Also, there should be some marking flags showing the way across the pipeline easement and helping keep you on the right path.   As time permits there will be rerouting where the pipeline went through.  I was hoping to have this completed before opening but our pipeline issues are not finalized.  Trail usage will be free until open enrollment starting in December.

Note:  If we get a large amount (2-3 inches) of rain within a 24 hour period give trails a day to drain after it stops.  During the thaw/freeze cycle ride when trails are frozen.   
NOTE:  The first part of short orange section is currently closed.
NOTE:  Deer Turkey Season Trail times:  Please respect the hunters in our family and stay off the trails before and after the times listed for the dates/times in the table below.

The trails are located on the private family-owned BJ Ranch.  This is a working cattle ranch so all livestock has the right of way. Please click About Us for a bit more history.
