    Not sure if we were aware of this? I see a Hibernia event on the calendar next month. Sounds like most areas affected are West of the big area of fields and toward the lake. Someone told me about this after I suggested they try some permanent courses and they chose Hibernia. Apparently there is damage to markers 7 and 9 from the logging operation.

    Yes. we went hiking there in March,  they were putting water and restrooms in the upper campground, but most trails were open at that time.  Things may have changed since then , and hopefully they are done!

    Actually camped there before heading over to the French Creek meet in August. Still a lot of work being done around the upper campground in particular at that time.

    This is scheduled park maintanence logging activity, due to be completed by the end of September. Some trails were closed, Monday through Thursday, then open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I visited the park today (Sunday, 9/13) and all control markers for the permanent orienteering courses are intact except #9. It was aparently knocked over during the logging activity. It is currently prop'd against a nearby tree - we'll plan on reinstalling it once they're finished up at the end of the month.
