June 22nd update – The Miller Springs Park entrance (Belton side) and the Old River trail along the levy are closed while the final construction work proceeds on the Dam.

The Park closure will last at least 2 more weeks, while final cleanup work is completed. This closure has blocked access to the bike entrance and trails from the south. Bike access is now via the west side of the Emergency Spillway.  There is a rough trail between the Nature Center driveway and the verge of Hwy 2271, down the embankment and then step over the steel pipe rail. Continue parallel to the pipe rail to the Mural Wall, follow the mural wall to the east end then following the top of the mural wall over to the dam and finally down the slope to the main bike trails.  The Miller Springs Nature Center will remain open.
