I did a short hike to the Megaliths yesterday ( highly reccommended), and I was wondering if overnight backpacking is allowed?  I did some searching and I know there are no open fires and no camping on the Highlands trail that runs thru that area.  That's all the info I could find.  If anyone has an answer it would be appreciated. Thanks

On February 27th, 2012 Larry Wheelock says: This is an update on the closing of the Highlands/Jessup Trail at Seven Springs Road. The Orange County Park renovations north of the road are NOT complete and the trail is closed where it approaches the construction area from the north and from the road. People are being ticketed for entering on the land. The County assures us that work will be complete "sometime" this spring. We'll be sure to alert people as soon as this happens.'s picture
