    • Important Notice (8/5/20): There will be a lot of fallen trees and debris in the parks because of the tropical storm damage. It might take trail and park maintainers weeks to recover conditions. Bridges may be washed away, areas may be slippery, and trees may be unstable at this time. There may be many unsafe areas at this time, so please use extreme caution wherever you go and don't go beneath anything that might fall.

      According to the Governor's Office, you should practice social distancing and wear a face-covering in public since you will invariably get within six feet of other people.
