Comments:

We were going to do the loop starting on the south end but saw the closure so decided to start from the north.  You can actually go about 1.25 miles from the north, ending just after the longest staircase.  Not an ideal situation but at least we got a 75 minute EXHAUSTING hike in.  The species didnt die off since the trail opened, maybe they can just ban dogs from that portion, or maybe route the path along the edge of the golf course.  Birds aren't dumb, they'd move, there is plenty of room there that has no trail on it.  Be forewarned, other parks could be next (like at Forest Ridge)
