The state Department of Environmental Conservation is closing all mud gates to trails and seasonal access roads on forest preserve, state forest and conservation easement lands across Northern New York effective immediately.

Motor vehicle use in the spring mud season can damage roads and delay their openings, according to the department.

The roads will reopen once workers complete necessary maintenance and the roads dry enough for motor vehicle traffic.
