Seasonal Road Closures For El Dorado National Forest

Seasonal Road Closures For El Dorado National Forest 

The annual seasonal closure of dirt roads has gone into effect on the Eldorado National Forest.  These roads will remain closed until at least April 1. The seasonal closure is designed to protect roadbeds and watersheds from damage and to protect water quality.  A minimum three month closure period from January 1 through March 30 was designated for the core part of the winter in the Eldorado National Forest Travel Management Plan.  To maintain flexibility, the timing of the dirt road closure is determined based on current conditions each year, which may cause the closure to go into effect early or be extended.  Regardless of when the closure is in effect, visitors should use good judgment about whether motor vehicle use will cause damage, and they can be held responsible if damage occurs.    Roads subject to seasonal closure are identified on a map that is free-of-charge and available at all Eldorado National Forest offices and on the web at: fs.usda.gov/eldorado.
