Hello Equestrian Friends,

The natural surface trails at Ray Roberts Lake SP have suffered severe erosion. Despite ongoing efforts to repair the 50+ mile trail system, we have limited resources.

To reduce trail damage, particularly from water, we will implement closures during wet conditions. Starting June 1, 2024, all equestrian trails will close during significant rainfall, along with DORBA mountain biking trails. These include trails at Isle du Bois, Greenbelt, and Jordan parks. The Bluestem equestrian campground and round pen will remain open. Trail status updates will be available on the park’s Facebook page, or by contacting Isle du Bois Park Headquarters.

Long-term closures will be posted on our park alerts website:


Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


Many thanks,

Robbie Merritt

Park Superintendent/Park Police
