Trail Advisories and Closures
Please observe all trail closures and barriers. Trails are closed for a variety of reasons, such as for visitor safety, to protect endangered species, to prevent erosion, and/or to allow new sections of trail to harden. Visitors who disregard trail closures may endanger themselves and any potential rescuers, harm threatened and endangered species, exacerbate erosion, or prevent new sections of trail from properly hardening, which results in the degradation of the trail surface, which in turn may require the closing of the trail for repair. Thank you for your cooperation.
Caution: Most trails in the park are overgrown with grass and annuals. The park's trail crew is working to address the trail conditions as best they can, but please anticipate wading through vegetation as you hike, and check yourself for ticks during and after your hike.
Visit our Trail Advisories and Closures for current information.
