Rushing River


Due to a severe winter storm, Rushing River will be closed until further notice. This storm not only knocked out power for several days, but it damaged and downed many trees. The heavy wet snow coupled with high winds broke the tops off hundreds of trees, but not all of the broken branches and tree tops made it to the ground. 

So due to the high hazard these trees pose to public safety we have made the decision to close the park until Spring 2018. 

Thank you for your understanding.
