Alerts & Conditions
Spring Winds and Hazard TreesBecause of recent fires and forest die-back, some areas of the Monument can be dangerous during times of high winds. Use caution and stay alert when hiking on windy days, and backcountry camp well away from stands of dead or fire damaged trees.
Campground Restrooms Under ConstructionThe restrooms in Loops A and B are currently being worked on. Porta-potties are in place. Loop C restrooms are open and camping in that loop is recommended.
Entrance Road construction, expect delaysDue to road construction, 10 minute to half hour delays are possible to enter or leave Frijoles Canyon, the Bandelier Visitor Center, and Main Loop Trail Monday through Friday. Please plan your day accordingly.
Too Many Visitors, Not Enough ParkingPark visitation is way up. With limited parking in the park and no shuttle until summer (May 14), we recommend you plan to come before 11 AM or after 2:30 PM to avoid waiting in line for a parking space.
