More park trails open in time for Memorial Day

NT Staff

A closure update was issued Thursday for Starved Rock and Matthiessen state parks, which are recovering from the April storms and floods.

“If you encounter trails that are not passable, turn back,” state park officials emphasized. “Status reports will be issued as conditions change.”

All areas of Starved Rock State Park are open except Ottawa-Kaskaskia canyon, which is closed; Tonti Canyon Bridge, also closed.

Matthiessen State Park’s Lower Dells trails remain closed until repairs can be made. The ravine connecting trail north and south is closed until repairs can be made. Horseback trails are open from the Dells north to the campground. Also open are the mountain bike trail, horseback campground and Vermilion River area to the south.
