Sunday is a beautiful day especially at some of the state parks.
If your family plans to hit the trails today, here are some important things to keep in mind.
It starts with preparation. You definitely want to have a plan in place because a lot of state parks can reach capacity quickly.
The following state parks have already reached capacity and are now closed for the day:
- Bigelow Hollow State Park in Union
- C.P. Huntington State Park in Bethel, Newtown and Redding
- Gardner Lake State Park in Salem
- Harkness Memorial State Park in Waterford
- Millers Pond State Park in Haddam
- Rocky Neck State Park in East Lyme
- Scantic River State Park in Enfield
- Sherwood Island State Park in Westport
- Southford Falls State Park in Southbury
- Wadsworth Falls State Park in Middletown
When you get to the state park, you want to remember to distance yourself by at least six feet to adhere to the Centers for Disease Control's guidelines. Try to let other people know when you are getting near them so they can step off the trail and allow you to pass.
You should also try to bring hand sanitizer to keep your hands clean while out on the trail.
And you may want to bring a bottle of water or a drink because some public water fountains may be closed.
