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:  

Thursday-Tuesday: 8:30 am-4:30 pm

Closed: Wednesday

Trail and Gate hours:

Trails are open sunrise to sunset

Our front entrance gate will continue to open by 8:30 am each day and be closed at 5 pm daily.

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.
