Due to the recent rain event, the Point Washington and Pine Log State Forests are temporarily closed. The gates will be closed until the roads become more navigable. The closure includes hikers, bikers and all vehicle traffic.
According to Shane McGowan, Forester at Point Washington, Forestry is currently seeking emergency funding to assist with enabling the reconstruction of the roads and trail bridges that have washed out.
To inquire about when the forests will be reopened, contact the field office at (850) 547-2083.
