The rain and in some places snow have made conditions very soggy in several locations. Rivers and streams are running fast and high. Some roads are delayed in opening. Roads that are open have saturated soils. Please respect gates and do not create new paths. Before you head out on your visit please check for closures, weather and road conditions and be prepared for all types of weather. Check out these helpful links as you plan your trip.
Due to the September 2013 flood, the Arapaho and Roosevelt NFs and Pawnee NG officials have closed some roads, trails, and facilities on the Boulder and Canyon Lakes ranger districts. Check our Flood Recovery page for closure details and information about the ARP's response and progress.
