Wawayanda State Park Conditions

@jeffstick is correct. It has been heavily overgrown up there this year. Prior to the cut back, you couldn't really get down Pines without bleeding from all your limbs unless you went in with DH gear. The top of Tombstone was the same. I'm okay with this as I was sick of it being so overgrown heading to Gravity and such. Now if someone could take a lawnmower down to rattlesnake, that would be fantastic. I have not seen ATV's up there either. I live in the area, and they are usually down on Cherry Ridge fireroads and in the park on Iron Mountain Road, etc. If you want to see a highway of trail damage, go to Ringwood. The ATV's and UTV's made them wide enough to put an 18 wheeler down the trails. I like to call it the I-95 extension.

Glad to hear it, I guess the folks I talked to got it wrong thinking it was ATV's tearing it up.
I haven't been there since July, but at that time I thought Tombstone was fine.
