    Campground/Picnic Areas/Roads/Trails Update
    The Wet Trail Closure in American Fork Canyon is in effect starting tomorrow, April 19th for the following trails: Pine Hollow trail #047, Mill Canyon trail 0#40, Tibble Fork trail #041, Salamander Flat trail #150, Ridge Trail trail #157, Mud Springs tail #173, Willow Hollow trail #159, South Fork Little Deer Creek trail #252. This means these trails are open only to hiking until the signs are removed. Signs will be posted starting tomorrow, April 19th. Keep in mind that even hiking/running can cause long term damage if the trails are too saturated. Other trails that are not part of the closure may also be too wet to ride. If wet trail conditions are encountered please turn around to avoid long term trail damage. Alternatives would be the front country trails until the trails at higher elevations have the chance to dry out. We will continue to send updates and will get the trails open as soon as possible.

Surveying Pika Populations Above Brighton

The American pika is a low-profile mammal that lives at high altitudes. Related to rabbits and hares, these small, big-eyed creatures spend much of the summer preparing for a harsh winter high above the timberline. Starting in mid-September, a DWR biologist will visit an established pika area above Brighton ski resort to check on population growth.
