GMF Closes Recreational Uses for Three Weeks

Great Mountain Forest will be closed to recreational use from Wednesday, November 15 through Wednesday, December 6, while the deer population is culled. Maintenance of the deer population is necessary to maintain the health of the animals and the forest. Ten to 12 deer per square mile is the ecological capacity of the forest.

The forest will be open to recreation on Sundays through these next three weeks.
