New Horse Trail Is Called Unsafe

A horse trail in the northeast San Fernando Valley, scheduled to be dedicated Saturday, is unsafe and should be closed immediately, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which leases the land to the city of Los Angeles.

A Corps official said the trail was too narrow in some areas and too steep in others. And, she said, a fence was not built on the dam side of the trail to keep horses off the dam face, which is beginning to erode.
