Dozens getting ticketed for ignoring closed trails at Starved Rock State Park

Posted by wlpo on July 21, 2014

Follow the signage at Starved Rock State Park or you could be out over a hundred dollars.

Conservation Police Sgt. Hank Frazier says between Friday and Sunday his department handed out nearly 130 tickets to hikers being in restricted areas. These tickets are a minimum of $120.

Frazier says there are still several trails with hanging limbs and branches. He says a tree fell across a bridge Sunday at the park, breaking a railing.

Besides all the tickets for people using closed trails, conservation officers also handed out over a dozen drug tickets and a handful of tickets for having alcohol on the trails over the weekend.
