(HENRYVILLE) - Southern Indiana trails that were heavily damaged by a deadly 2012 tornado are being restored through the work of the Department of Natural Resources and volunteers.

The 58-mile Knobstone Trail that passes through Clark, Scott and Washington counties has reopened. Officials say repairs to 15 miles of horse trails in the Clark State Forest are expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Deam Lake naturalist Rocky Brown tells The Herald-Times that the restoration has been slowed by the rugged terrain.

The F4 tornado that struck Henryville and surrounding communities on March 2, 2012, destroyed two sections of the Knobstone Trail and damaged 7,500 acres of forest. Brown says the damage ranged from "total destruction to just a few things knocked down."
