Watch Out for Falling Trees!
Falling trees are always a hazard when traveling in forested areas.
Follow these guidelines to help avoid the risks associated with falling trees.
- Be aware of your surroundings. Avoid dense patches of dead trees. They can fall without warning.
- Stay out of the forest when there are strong winds that could blow down trees. If you are already in the forest when the wind kicks up, head to a clearing out of reach of any potential falling trees.
- Place tents and park vehicles in areas where they will not be hit if trees fall.
- Do not rely on cell phones for safety as there is no coverage in many parts of the park.
