Hello Burlington Parks and Rec, is there anywhere I can find a current / future planned trail map? There are so many nooks and crannies in the Arms forest and I often end up walking out of a trail with a "Closed for re-vegetation" sign when I went down a trail that wasn't blocked off. I really want to respect trail closures, please help.
