When can we hike the new lands?
The newly acquired lands are not yet available for public use. There are no roads, parking areas, trails, or anything else. In some cases the prior tenant has not moved off the property and it would be trespassing to go on the property.
Limited hiking is available at the Summit Conference Center. Call ahead for availability for hours.
What are the future plans for the Park?
The State Parks Division will begin to develop a Master Plan for the current holdings. This will include facilities, trails, uses, roads, entrances, etc. Various inventories of the properties need to be made so that no unnecessary damage occurs during development.
Public meetings will be held to gather input from users and neighbors. Look for more information on this in the Fall of 2008 on the FriendsofHawRiverSP.org website.
