Improvements at Hills Creek will require trail closures

WELLSBORO – Work is underway to replace a bridge over Tauscher’s Stream in Hills Creek State Park.

Due to this, the road that connects the day-use and campground areas of the park is closed.

The project was timed to avoid camping season.

Work also continues nearby on the addition of full-hookup campsites and water line work.

Due to both of these projects, park users should note that a portion of the Lake Side Trail is closed. There is no detour;  an out-and-back hike is the only option only.

In addition, Yellow Birch Trail is closed entirely due to its proximity to the work site.

The Tauscher’s Trail loop remains open.

Park maps are available online or at the park office. Additional information will be available on the park’s Facebook page and will include updates on the project timeline and expected completion.

The current projected completion is set for late December.
