Evansburg State Park was like finding a hidden gem right in our own backyard. Unfortunately, the hike was cut short by heavy rains which made it dangerous to continue on this mainly single-track hike.

As with our last hike through Evansburg State Park (see Hike #20), we had to stop our trek about mid-way through. Only this time it appears Mother Nature was to blame, as many trails were either partially or completely obstructed by downed trees, presumably from the area's recent tangle with Hurricane Irene.
We still had a nice trip, however, and took some great pictures along the way (we did manage to see over 3 miles of trails!!). We'll be bringing you our report on this hike soon. In the meantime, we leave you with the picture to your left - a web of downed trees, broken branches, and other debris. It's quite a shame.
Beyond the damage down to our parks and trails from the hurricane, it's important to also remember the losses people experienced this past weekend with the hurricane. The American Red Cross has launced a relief effort. Take a moment and visit their website by using this link if you want more information on the relief efforts underway, and what you can do to help.
