Trails in Ringwood State Park are open, with the exception of Crossover Trail and Cooper Union Trail.   Those two trails should be open within the month as the pipeline work there is completed.    Happy Hiking!

Due to the impending construction to widen the Tennessee Gas Pipeline, which crosses the park, the park superintendent has announced that all trails in Ringwood State Park are closed until April 15, 2013.  This closure affects only trails in Ringwood State Park, not those in the adjacent Ramapo Mountain State Forest or Ramapo Valley County Reservation.

The furnace malfunctioned and blew soot all over the place. First theft, now this! When will the plagues end?
