DCR Recreational Advisory: Trail Safety

Please check here for updated Park alerts and closures

Due to heavy storm damage over the winter, the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) would like to remind all recreational users to be cautious while utilizing department trails, greenways, rail trails and fire roads. Heavy snow, rains, and wind have attributed to tree falls, bridge and stream crossing damage, and washouts throughout the DCR system. Hazards may include overhead broken limbs and branches, compromised stream and wetland crossings, downed trees and or debris hazards. Any trails that are found to be impassable may be marked as closed with appropriate signage.

For up-to-date closures please check the DCR Park Alerts webpage.

Please report any hazards to mass.parks@mass.gov.
