When is Long Branch Farm & Trails Reopening?

On April 2, severe storms hit our area causing severe damage to the entrance. The bridge was condemned for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic forcing us to close temporarily. Since then, we have been working hard to create a temporary entrance. We re-graveled the existing one-lane maintenance road and added vehicular bump outs to allow for two-way traffic. In addition, we purchased a temporary gatehouse, created signage, and increased staffing.

On Saturday, May 11, we hope to open this temporary entrance on Fay Road for members only. The hours of operation will be as follows:

May

  • Closed Monday-Thursday

  • Open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 8 am–7 pm

June, July, and August

  • Open 7 days a week, 8 am–7 pm

September through December

  • Closed Monday-Thursday

  • Open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 8 am–7 pm

Gates will be locked at 7 pm sharp. Hours are strictly enforced.

 

We are working on the new permanent bridge and hope to have it completed by later in the fall.
