Roads & Locations
Many areas of the park were heavily impacted, damaged, or closed following record rainfall in August. Road crews have reopened all paved roads, but there is still a lot of work to be done in the backcountry.
Note that road closures listed below apply to ALL vehicles, including motorcycles and bicycles. The roads were completely washed out in places and entry will cause tire tracks and braided roads in wilderness as users try to locate what was once the road. Thank you for your patience as we work to reopen these locations.
