Park & trail alert


Trail access may be affected by contracted mowing and spraying to be conducted this June under the power lines at Frohring Meadows. We will post dates here as soon as they become available.



The Maple Highlands Trail between Burton Windsor Road and Tare Creek Parkway in Middlefield Village will be closed starting November 15 for the installation of an electric line to run the pumps for a new water well. Signage will be posted the week before the closure. Please continue to use extreme caution in this area; work to install a new water well on village property adjacent to the trail, about a quarter mile south of the Burton Windsor Road crossing, is likely to put mud, dirt and other debris on the trail surface. Patrons can expect commercial truck traffic and construction equipment at this active construction site until this notice has been removed. Some signage in this area is also impacted, so temporary signage has been installed out of concern for patrons.

The permanent bridge along Russell Uplands Preserve‘s Hickory Trace Trail was destroyed by a fallen tree and has been replaced by a temporary foot bridge.

No truck traffic is permitted on The West Woods‘ entry drive bridge until further notice.

Alerts on this page will be updated periodically and removed as soon as parks and trails have reopened. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
