Ontonagon, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Officials at the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park are asking hikers to avoid some areas damaged by recent storms.

Visitors should stay away from the mouths of the Big and Little Carp rivers along the Lake Superior Trail until damage from torrential rains and flooding can be repaired.

The rains washed out the bridge over the Big Carp River, removed many sections of boardwalk and compromised other structures.

The park has also closed several cabins because of the storm damage, and the DNR is also warning of floating debris on Lake Superior.

The flooding happened after storms on Monday dumped as much as 11 inches of rain in the region.
