In early March, 2018, the area was impacted by a series of severe winter storms. Heavy, wet snow and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph toppled numerous trees and power lines. In mid-May, the area was impacted by another powerful storm that contained high winds, resulting in more damage to trees and power lines. Repairs to trails and facilities affected by these storms is ongoing.
Most trails are open and accessible, but several remain closed due to public hazard. The following trails remain closed:
- Conashaugh View Horse Trail in PA
- George W. Childs Park Trail in PA
