Tickets being handed out at Starved Rock for going into storm-damaged areas

Posted by wlpo on July 19, 2014

If you’re weekend plans include a trip to Starved Rock State Park, remember to use only the trails that are open.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources says the first phase of cleanup at the park after the June 30th storms is done. That included repairs to stairways, decks and railings.

Phase two of storm cleanup is now underway with removing dead or damaged limbs and trees along with debris piles. All interior trails remain closed including St. Louis Canyon.

Signs are up warning hikers of closed trails. Conservation Police say they issued 57 tickets last week to hikers going into restricted areas.
