Oxbow Nature Study Area trails remain closed

A human-caused brush fire in April 2008 made its impact to the Oxbow Nature Study Area, located along the Truckee River west of downtown Reno. Although parts of the park, including the overlooks to the Beaver Pond, are now again open to the public, most of the system of short trails through the cottonwood and brush forest remains closed for restoration. The scorched trees can be seen from within the park and from the bike trail on the other side of the Truckee River.
