Hunting season starts Saturday, Nov 21 and continues to December 22.

We advise avoiding hikes during the first few weeks of the season
or being extra cautious while you’re out.

If you choose to hike at one of RPA's community forests or preserves,
or on other public lands (including state lands),

please remember to wear some blaze orange, and avoid wearing white.

Hunting at RPA community forests is restricted to a few hunters per day.
Hunting is NOT allowed at Barberville Falls,
but it’s still a good idea to wear blaze orange on the trails.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to us: / 518-712-9211
