From State Park website -
Mar 20, 2015 - Mar 26, 2015

All trails are closed beginning the evening of Sunday, March 22 through at least Thursday, March 26.  This includes the Ozark Trail sections in the park and Mina Sauk Falls Trail.  No backpacking camping or hiking is allowed during this time.  Staff will be conducting a managed burn on those days. This closure has been extended past the originally expected date due to strong wind gusts expected in the area of the burn.

Also closed will be the trailhead accessing the Ozark Trail section from Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park.
