Default Yankee Springs "Scenic Pine Trail"

I can't find it on Google, but my Gazateer shows it. Theres a trail labeled Scenic Pine Trail (or similar) here in the Yankee Sprigs Rec Area (next to the Barry State Game Area). The guys and me have been driving that trail for YEARS as well as alot of others. Not a hard trail or even a trail that requires 4x4. But a very,very cool trail through some really cool pines. Very scenic. I haven't driven the trail in probably two months. Well went out today and found this....







On the south side of the trail entrance has been a sign for years that stated "unmainted trail"

Would you be interested/willing to do a little leg work to help me find out more about it?

Maybe together we can address whatever concern lead to its closure.

The last time I was down that trail was last fall. What I saw was pretty sad. Someone had spray painted a lot of the trees with profanity and graffiti. Not to mention the trash that was out there. I am sure what I saw contributed to the barricades you see now.

Wow you weren't kidding about the parking lot. That really sucks about the disrespect going on and the fact that they closed it. I bet you'll have a real hard time getting them to reopen that one but maybe opening some dialog will keep from other trails being shut down.
