Higley Flow State Park & Lodge Will Be Open Saturdays/Sundays Starting December 13th.

I am pleased to announce that the Park and the Lodge will be open from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. on Saturdays and Sundays this winter beginning tomorrow, Saturday, December 13.

We are grateful to Kevin Kieff and the Regional Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation at Keewaydin for providing the resources necessary to make this happen.

I'll leave it to the Fuhrs for the detailed ski reports, but I've heard that ski conditions are very good. The camp loops and roads are packed and track set. I believe the woods trails have been groomed as well.

I look forward to seeing you on the trails!

We would ask that people make every effort to be out of the Park by
5:00, the Park closing time.  The Regional Office has gone out of their
way to make this happen and we want to make sure that we don't abuse the
privilege.  A Park employee will be closing the Lodge, and, for safety
reasons, the parking lot must be clear when they leave.
