Backcountry Road Storm Damage
Recent monsoon rains washed out portions of several backcountry roads in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Portions of Hole-in-the-Rock Road, the Burr Trail, and Blue Notch Road may be impassable, even for high clearance four-wheel drive vehicles.
County road crews are working to repair storm damage. Visitors are advised to contact local ranger stations regarding road conditions before embarking on backcountry travel.
