Visitor Alert:

  • Spring temporary trail and road closures are now in affect due to wet conditions in state forest, parks, recreation area and wildlife management areas.
  • Road and trail users should pay particular attention to state forest closures. A closed forest means that all roads and trails are closed. Signs will be posted at entry points and parking lots. The closures include all unmarked roads and trails, unless specifically listed.
