SERVICE ACCESS ROAD

Tire tracks on service roadThe entire service road/canyon access trail will be closed through Wednesday of this week. The temporary access trail that joins the Chute trail down to the footbridge and the Homestead trail are the detour/alternate routes into the canyon.

 

THE BIVY
Campground pathway construction starts today or Tuesday and will be ongoing for the next 2 to 3 weeks. One of the Bivy tent access pathways will remain open but expect delays.

Also note that the compost/mulch pile that will be used in the rehab area is putting off a not so pleasant odor mainly affecting the common/parking area.
