The impacts of the COVID pandemic are far reaching.
- Unfortunately, due to impacts of the pandemic and shelter in place, DNR was not able to hire summer crews. This has a significant impact on the regular maintenance of all state parks and trails, including the Gateway and Brown's Creek. We ask for you patience. Downed trees are an immediate need DNR will address. If you encounter one, please call: 651-296-6157. For other trail maintenance, we ask for your patience during this unusual time.
- Drinking fountains will not be open until further notice. To avoid COVID-19 transfer, the fountains will remain closed until determined safe for use. Please bring re-usable water bottles with you on the trail to avoid dehydration.
