Fountain Bluff Update

Recently I planned to hike on the river trail in Fountain Bluff. After one-fourth mile there now is a gate across the old rail bed and no tresspassing sign. This pretty trail runs between a continuous tall cliff line and frequent views of the Mississippi River and bayous. I sent a letter to the owners about permission to hike. Check this blog index for a previous update on Fountain Bluff canyon. A good overview of trails in Fountain Bluff can be accessed at our website: Scroll to Fountain Bluff and Tyson Canyon. More info from Bob Tyson at 684-5643 or i do have permission from the owner, however since the 2008 inland hurricane, the trail is demolished. Further updates on fountain Bluff: GPS coordinates for the top of Fountain Bluff road are 89 29' 58.95"W and 37 41' 36.85"N. The coordinates for the township road running along the base of Fountain Bluff are 89 29' 58.91"W and 37 41' 56.51"N.

Thank you for this information. Upon consideration of looking for the Fountain Bluff trail that I have heard of for 35 years, thought I recalled you speaking about the "no trespass" sign at a Shawnee Sierra meeting.
