Canyon Lakes District Road Status

Multiple roads and trails on the Boulder and Canyon Lakes ranger districts remain closed due to last fall's flood. Those areas that have re-opened are still near or accessed by routes that are being used by those conducting road repair and other activities. Visitors should expect delays and additional restrictions may be in place by county. Check our Flood page for closure details.

Please check http://www.cotrip.org/home.htm for updates on highway conditions and closures.

Safety:  The mountain pine beetle epidemic has increased the risk of falling trees.  When driving in the forest, park close to a main road, rather than on a spur or one-way section.  If trees fall across the road you may be trapped.  Bring an ax or a saw to remove fallen trees.

You may encounter muddy or wet areas. To prevent resource damage, do not attempt to go around natural barriers. Do not attempt roads that are above your skill level. Let someone know where you are planning to go. 

The Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) will help ensure you are on a road authorized for the public. This free map is available both electronically and at our district office. 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 and 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.
