Weekend delays   

Weekend delays: Due to increased visitation, several parks are reaching parking space capacity and are having to close temporarily on weekends to incoming traffic. Please be prepared by arriving early morning or late afternoon on weekends and having a backup plan in case the parking areas are full when you arrive. Weekdays are the best time to visit our parks if you want to avoid parking closures and crowds.

PEA CREEK TRAIL CLOSED    

The Pea Creek Trail (trailhead located at the Cole Mill access) is closed until further notice. Due to recent storms, erosion has undercut steps, put deep holes into the trail, and significantly damaged the trail. Do Not Enter From Any Access.
