UPCOMING TRAIL CLOSURES:
Construction is scheduled to begin on July 28th to repair a mile-long section of concrete on the paved bike trail south of Bear Creek Reservoir. The work will replace sections of the trail that have been heavily cracked and broken. Please refer to the trail closure map for approximate closure points and alternative, paved routes.
Bear Creek continues to undergo stream and trail construction on a creek stabilization project to repair flood damage on the north side of the creek. We continue to experience periodic closures and trail delays on the Mount Carbon Trail between Cottontail and Whitetail. The segment of Mount Carbon Trail near Muskrat Meadows will remain closed until construction is complete.
View a map of closure points and alternative routes.
Conditions and closures may change at any time. Please abide by all posted signs and closure markers.
2014 Annual Passes are now available for purchase online or at the park entrance station or Visitor Center.
