While we are enjoying the warmer temperatures and singing birds, mud season can take a toll on roads and trails.
During Mud Season (March 1-April 31) Parker Pond Headland is closed to hikers. The Fellows Cove Road is only open to homeowners during this time to minimize impacts to the road. Maintenance costs associated with mud season are expensive. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
Please walk carefully and minimize travel on wet and muddy trails until trail surfaces have had a chance to dry and harden.
