The Mo DNR and St. Joe State Park have both agreed to leave the Leadbelt XC trail as is. Any and all issues regarding its routing through high quality zones have been addressed. The DNR was very supportive of trying to keep the trail and the event while also working to protect the integrity of the High Quality Zones within the Park. We all learned from each other.
The trail will remain as it always has been, a Special event Trail. Any and all trail closures signs should be down.
Thank You for everyone's support through this process.
