What's Happening?

Pleasant Grove Ranger District: Winter camping on will be completed this weekend (Last day being the 29th). After this date the camping will be at the Lower Little Mill area on a “first come first serve” basis. This will be the only camping available in the canyon until approximately Memorial Day. Maybe sooner if the weather helps melt the snow near the Summit Trailhead. We want to remind users that the trails are still under a “wet trail” closure, and the gates at Tibble Fork and Pine Hollow are closed. During the road closures there can be maintenance taking place on the roads, so please do not cross the gates either hiking, or biking. The roads are closed to all users at this time.Winter camping on Pleasant Grove Ranger District will be completed this weekend (Last day being the 29th).

Related to rabbits and hares, these small, big-eyed creatures spend much of the summer preparing for a harsh winter high above the timberline.
