Canyon Lakes District Road Status

  • Motor Vehicle Use Map

    A placeholder image

    Motor Vehicle Use Maps will help ensure you are on a road authorized for public use while on the forests and grassland. The map is free, district specific and available electronically.

Due to the impacts from the Cameron Peak Fire, some roads remain closed. Find information on the closure order here.

SAFETY:  You may encounter trees that have fallen across the road throughout the district. Be prepared by bringing a saw or other tool. To prevent resource damage, do not go around downed trees or muddy areas. Do not attempt roads whose condition are above your skill level or for which you are not properly equipped. 

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.

If you come across an open gate on a road that is not scheduled to be open, do not drive that road.

Most roads on the Canyon Lakes Ranger District close seasonally December 1 and begin to reopen mid-June if conditions allow.  All roads generally open by mid-July.
