Monbo Opens at LNSP!
From Ranger Casey Reinhardt:

The MONBO LOOP (Phase III) of the ITUSI trail opened today a little after 8 am.

TRAIL CLOSES AT 6:30 PM during March. It will stay open until 7:30 pm during April and May.

The Monbo loop is about 900 feet shy of 6 miles in length. The original two phases of the ITUSI are 6.7 miles (including the Hawk, Norwood Creek and Hicks Creek loops). The Hawk loop is the original trail minus the Hicks and Norwood loops.

On behalf of NC State Parks, I would like to express our sincere appreciation to ALL of the volunteers that made this possible.

Bob and Jeff deserve special recognitions. This entire project would be non-existent without their leadership, dedication, professionlism and unselfishness. We all owe them a steak dinner. They have sacrificed countless weekends away from their families on top of working 60+ hours per week in their paying jobs. In my 25 years in the parks and recreation field,I have never known two individuals that have done more for the public, the environment and trail users than these men.

Thanks Bob and Jeff. You build beautiful and sustainable trails.

I also want to recognize and thank Mike Hamm, Lee Hentz, Ross Dowswell, Big Wes, the Tarheel Trailblazers and the Dirt Divas for their continuing support and volunteer efforts. You are all a great bunch of folks and we look forward to working with you for many years to come.

Enjoy, Casey
