Devils Garden Loop Road Construction May Result in Limited Park Access
Contact: Kate Cannon, 435-719-2101
The Devils Garden Loop Road Trailhead will be closed from Monday, June 16th through Thursday, June 26th for completion of a major renovation.
Given recent record-breaking park visitation, those entering Arches should expect parking to be limited and parking lots to be full, especially during the construction period.
If necessary to protect park resources and alleviate vehicle congestion during the Devils Garden project closure, access to the park may be restricted.
Parking regulations will be strictly enforced.
Park officials recommend visitors avoid Arches National Park during this construction or visit the park prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 3:00 p.m.
Superintendent Kate Cannon stated, "We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we continue our efforts to protect park resources while improving park facilities for visitors."
