Following the storm on Saturday, May 21, there are fallen or dangerous trees throughout the region. NCC crews are working hard to assess, secure and clear our sites. The cleanup and securing of the sites could take a few weeks or even months, depending on the extent of the damage.

Please remain patient and vigilant while our teams secure and clear impacted areas. A reminder that handling fallen trees is a risky task that should be handled by professionals.

To plan your visit, please see the list of open and closed sectors and trails below.
