Things change fast during this health emergency! Ebenezer Campground/recreation.gov is emailing refund notices. The Ebenezer campground is closed during the scheduled dates of this ride.
Although we were communicating with the park staff, they were not aware of pending closures. We regrettably are cancelling this ride.

The park is adjacent to Angelina National Forest with over 26 miles of trails. Terrain is soft and sandy, boots are not required. Trails include hills, gullies and access to the Sam Rayburn lake beach and reservoir.
