DEC Advises Public to Avoid Adirondack Backcountry Trails and Summits this Weekend

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today is advising the public to avoid backcountry trails and summits throughout the Adirondack region for the duration of the weekend.

Heavy rain and high winds have caused major flooding in the region, which has closed many major roadways throughout the Adirondacks. DEC anticipates that damage in the backcountry will be extensive and that these areas are unstable and dangerous to visitors. Water levels are currently high, some bridges are washed out, and all stream crossings will be impassable. In addition, trails are flooded and summits pose danger of potential rock slides and falling debris. High winds have caused a large amount of downed trees and debris at trailheads and on trails, as well as downed trees and power lines across roadways.

For current trail conditions, visit DEC's Adirondack Backcountry Information webpage.
