Waterton Canyon closed weekdays through June 14

Trail maintenance to lessen dust and enhance recreational experience


Weekday access to Waterton Canyon will be closed through Friday, June 14, for Denver Water's annual dust mitigation project. Neither the parking lot at the canyon's entrance nor the canyon will be accessible.

Waterton Canyon is planned to be open on Saturday, June 8, and Sunday, June 9, for weekend recreation.

“Waterton Canyon is an extremely popular recreation destination, and we recognize that the closure is an inconvenience,” Brandon Ransom, manager of recreation for Denver Water, said in a news release. “Closing the canyon for a short time for maintenance helps keep the road in good condition for the rest of the year. A smooth road surface allows for a more enjoyable recreation experience in Waterton Canyon.”

Hikers and bikers on the Colorado Trail should seek alternative access points, which can be found at www.coloradotrail.org.
