Mariton: Memorial Day Weekend
by Tim Burris, Preserve Manager
The Nature Center will be closed this weekend.
There are several trail closures due to Hurricane Sandy, and the clean-up effort. Trails are closed with Caution Tape. Do not enter these areas.
The Spruce and Kit Trails remain closed.
The Squeeze Trail and the entire Turnpike Trail are also closed again.
The South Fox Trail and Main Trail have been reopened, but there are some muddy patches on both.
The loggers cleaning the area have been working very hard to get in and out quickly so that Mariton can resume normal operations. It is hard to remember 6 months after the fact, how long it took just to make local roads passable. Likewise, it took months to clear trails here at Mariton. That was just emergency work with the goal of getting things moving again. The salvage effort is a much larger project of cleaning up some of those dmaged areas. Please bear with us a little longer.
