Feel free to go out and clear any section of trail. Visit a recently maintained section to see what we expect!

Spring and summer tools: swing blade, string trimmer, pruning shears, machete, and a small handsaw are all you need to clear a trail. Large fallen trees will be taken care of by park staff.
