Tuesday, the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park announced trail closures for the picnic area.
The walking trails will be closed Wednesday, July 25 to Saturday, July 28 to remove hazardous trees.
“We know these trails are popular, and we regret inconveniences caused by these trail closures,” Superintendent Bill Justice said. “Our highest priority is the safety of our visitors and employees. For their safety we ask that people respect these closures.”
The picnic area itself remains open.
