Canyon Lakes District Road Status

You can follow us on twitter at https://twitter.com/usfsclrd to receive up to date information on road openings. Starting December 1, many seasonal road closures will begin. Don't get stuck behind a gate when it gets closed.

Safety:  You may encounter trees that have fallen across the road throughout the district.  Be prepared by bringing a saw or other implement. You may encounter snowy, muddy or wet areas. To prevent resource damage, do not attempt to go around downed trees or muddy areas. Do not attempt roads that are above your skill level. Let someone know where you are planning to go. 

Please check http://www.cotrip.org/home.htm for updates on highway conditions and closures. Check Larimer County road closure page and find a Larimer County road map here.

Work has starting on Highway 34 and there is a closure. Check the Colorado Department of Transportations information for the latest.

The Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) will help ensure you are on a road authorized for the public. This free map is available electronically as a pdf and available to use on your smart phone or tablet through the Avenza app. The map distinguishes between roads open to non-licensed and licensed vehicles and lists dates of seasonal road closures. If you come across an open gate on a road that is not scheduled to be open, do not drive that road. Please report the open gate to the district office at 970-295-6700.

There can be a delay of a few hours to a few days between the opening/closing of gates and the postings on this website, especially during our busy field season. We will do our best to keep it updated as soon as changes occur.
