CLOSURE NOTICE

Portions of the Roundup Trail, Red Rock Canyon Trail, and Red Rock Canyon Rim Trail will be closed beginning February 22nd.  This closure is expected to last several weeks, depending on weather. During this time, heavy equipment will be in use. For public safety, entry into the work zone or use of the trail sections described is prohibited. See closure map for more details.

Closure details:

  • Red Rock Canyon Trail: Between Quarry Pass Trail and Red Rock Rim Trail
  • Roundup Trail: Between Mesa Trail and Red Rock Rim Trail
  • Red Rock Rim Trail: Between Landfill Road Trail and Red Rock Canyon Trail

This closure will affect East-West connectivity within the Open Space.
Plan on alternate routes.

 

In compliance with the 2013 Red Rock Canyon Open Space Master plan, and with funding from the Trails, Open Space and Parks (TOPS) sales tax program, the city’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department will be working in Red Rock Canyon Open Space to address sustainability issues on several popular trails. This work is being done to address damage to existing trail, re-route unsustainable trail which cannot be improved within existing trail corridor, and improve safety and user experience while maintaining the overall character of the trails.

Many popular and heavily utilized trail features have been identified, and park staff have worked to preserve these features where it is possible while creating sustainable trails. Some features may not be preserved due to the unsustainable nature of the trail they are located on. In these cases, other features and recreational opportunities have been identified and incorporated to maintain the existing character of the trail.
