Trail conditions around Deer Park Pond
<P>I did this hike last week.&nbsp; Yes, some of the trails were quite wet -- and so were a number of trails elsewhere, in view of the recent heavy rains.&nbsp; I wore good-quality hiking boots, and my feet stayed pretty dry even though I had to walk through water in&nbsp;several places.&nbsp; Most of the trails around the pond were not all that wet -- even last week.</P> <P>So the author of the comment is correct in warning hikers that some of the trails in the area around Deer Park Pond may be wet after heavy rains.&nbsp; Just be prepared with appropriate footwear!</P>
