With heavy hearts, we made the very difficult decision on Saturday, March 28 to close Vaughan Woods until further notice. The extremely high rate of visitation on the warm Saturday as well as the lack of social distancing practices on the part of visitors (despite our many educational signs) gave us no other choice than to follow the lead of the State of Maine which has closed many popular parks and beaches for the same reason.
From what we saw on the trails on Saturday, it is evident that many people are not taking this crisis seriously. Take care of yourselves friends. Educate everyone you know. We will see you on the trail again when this is all over.
