Don't forget water!   

It's that time of year again. The heat and humidity are getting to be consistently high. Please plan ahead and bring more water than you think you'll need. Don't forget to bring some for your furry friends, too. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are not currently selling concessions. There are water spigots near the museum in the office parking lot, the lower picnic area, and the bridle trail parking lot. The restrooms at the boathouse and lower picnic area are open. The restroom at the Morrow Mountain Summit is closed for repairs and there is no other water source available up there at this time.
