Due to beaver activity, the Clinton West/Highlands Trails in the Pequannock Watershed may be flooded where they cross the dam between Clinton Reservoir and Buckabear Pond.  Please use caution when crossing the dam, and expect to get your feet wet. 

Moreover, portions of the Bearfort Waters-Clinton Trail on the west side of Buckabear Pond are completely submerged and impassable.  This section of Bearfort Waters-Clinton Trail has therefore been formally closed.  Trail Conference volunteers expect to have a reroute of this section completed by the summer of 2009.  The remaining sections of the Bearfort Waters-Clinton Trail are still open to public use.
