Bear Mountain State Park is in the process of replacing the water tower that falls just off of the Major Welch Trail. During construction, there will be signs noting the construction zone and barricades blocking the segment of trail where construction is taking place during work hours. The work crew will have staff directing hikers around the active construction zone. The work will be taking place on Monday-Friday from 7am-3PM, but will be fully open and passable at all other times. Work is expected to be complete by early July.
