Where: North of Frozen Head State Park to Cave Branch
Why: This area is closed for maintenance of downed trees and new blazing effective immediately. Duration is indefinite as situation needs remedied before area is safe enough to hike (difficult to stay or trail). Frozen Head State Park trails, southward – remain open. As does from Cove Lake State Park south to the Cave Branch Trailhead (you would need to be picked up at the Cave Branh Trailhead and not proceed further).
Where: Daddy’s Creek Trailhead – North
Why: Roughly 1.9 miles north of the Trailhead there is a segment of trail which is washed out. Repair crews are in the area looking to fix the issue. Beyond this point there are also downed trees in the area as well. Please use extreme caution in the area.
Where: Devil’s Breakfast Table Trailhead – South
Why: This is a reminder that while there is a short segment of trail heading south from the Devil’s Breakfast Trailhead, that segment and this entire segment south to the Daddy’s Creek Trailhead is still CLOSED as the trail is being built in this area.
