    I am a volunteer at a National Wildlife Refuge in a state that is locked down. All facilities are closed and have been for weeks already but hiking trail is open. Visitors are asked to keep their distance from one another and if the parking lot is busy (it hasn't been) please don't stop. I know everywhere is not the some but closed doesn't necessarily mean the entrance gate is closed to the outside areas. Things will change in a blink of the eye if things get crowded and social distancing isn't observed. Check park web sites they usually are very clear at what is available or not.

    Over here (UK), you mustn’t travel unles absolutely necessary and you will be fined if caught. You can go to shop, Pharmacy and
    Work if it is impossible to work from home. That is if your employer hasn’t shut down temporarily. It’s not a great time is it. As I say Stay safe all

    Whether it is allowed depends on the state and if the parks are open or not.
