Trails are open everyday!
Winter Building and Trail Schedule
Due to a temporary staffing issue we will have a modified visitor center schedule. The schedule is:
Visitor Center hours:
January 2-February 28:
Friday-Tuesday: 9 am-4 pm
Closed: Wednesday & Thursday
After March 1:
8:30 am-4:30 pm Daily
Trail and Gate hours:
Trails are open sunrise to sunset
Our front entrance gate will continue to open by 9 am each day and be closed at 5 pm daily through February 28.
We will send updates on the gate schedule as winter progresses. The nightly gate closure is an effort to prevent vandalism and other “shenanigans” that occur in the evenings in our public parking lot and road.
