The heavy rains earlier this month have passed, but their effects are still being felt in Maryland's state parks.

The state's Department of Natural Resources is cautioning people to be careful in state parks affected by flooding caused as the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee drenched the region.

The department says all state parks are open, but some trails still may be muddy or blocked by fallen trees. Some buildings and facilities also may be temporarily unavailable while damage is repaired.

One of the hardest-hit areas was the Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail in northern Baltimore County. Parts of that trail were flooded by the nearby Big Gunpowder River. Others were washed out by flash flooding.
