Trail Conditions

A snapping turtle hanging out in the wetlands of Forestview Natural Area. Use caution if you're exploring flooded areas. Trail Report – April 27, 2017

Spring has sprung at Little Forks Conservancy’s nature preserves! That means one thing – soggy trails! Be prepared on your next trip out by checking out the latest trail conditions below.

Want to help us maintain our trails? Let us know if you encounter any downed trees or other problems! Email with the preserve name, the date you visited, and what you observed.

Averill Preserve
Overall, good trail conditions. However, there is some puddling in shaded areas.

Trail improvements will begin soon, which will result in trail closures. Get the latest updates on our Averill Access for All project by clicking here.

Forestview Natural Area
Puddling in some areas. The Lowland Trails are experiencing more water than past years, so you may want to avoid that area.

Riverview Natural Area
From the parking area to the stairs: There is puddling in some areas, but most can be walked around.
At the ravine stairway: The stream banks at the bottom of the stairs are very slippery. Use caution or avoid this area.
Northern trails: The trails past the stairway are very wet. Use caution or avoid this area.

Szok Preserve
Pine Haven Recreation Area’s parking lot is now open; however, lot conditions are still a little soft so use caution. Heavy rains will shut the parking lot back down due to the poor conditions.

Trail conditions may be muddy, but shouldn’t have any standing water.
