The popular Snake River Falls in Cherry County has reopened.
The group that runs the private property around the falls closed it in July after problems with litter and vandalism.
Mike Adams, Snake River Preservation Group president, says they want people to see the falls, but also follow the long-standing rules.
“I hope people will read the signage and comply with our requests and that will allow us to continue to let the public see the falls,” Adams tells Nebraska Radio Network. “That’s what we’d like.”
The preservation group installed new rope fence barriers along with the more prominent signage.
Adams says access to the river is only for a sportsman club that leases the rights from the preservation group.
“We plan to prosecute anyone who trespasses,” Adams warns. “If that’s not effective, the next step is probably to close down the falls to the public.”
You can visit the Snake River Falls between nine and five daily.
The fee for viewing access will still be $1 for adults and $0.75 for children. Adams says the minimal charge helps the owners pay for liability insurance.
