As a reminder, please check the website or Facebook page of the park you love, before heading out to recreate. Often times the trails are closed during and after the rain.
Please respect trail closures. Why? 1. Trails are easily damaged if they are used too soon after the rain causing ruts. 2. If you get hurt, you are much more difficult to rescue in bad weather and on slippery dirt roads. 3. The ground needs time to soak up the water, and with clay like soils throughout the hills, this soak can take a while. 4. Visitors attempt to avoid mud puddles and end up creating a wider trail post rain.
