Attention Horseback riders

Due to a number of complaints regarding  horse manure left on the trail, we are instituting a policy for manure removal. There is a manure fork directly behind our portelets for your use. Please return following your ride, or have another person responsible for pick up. We want everyone to enjoy their visit at the park and welcome your help. Please call the Park District  or email  us at 899-2693 or jupdistrict@ with any questions.
