A series of forecasted storms have prompted officials to close multiple recreation areas and roads to ensure public safety with the predicted heavy rain in a series of winter storms.
Rowher Flats and Drinkwater Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) areas are closed. As are the South Fork, Big Rock, Gould Mesa and Coldbrook campgrounds along with the Bridge to Nowhere Trail are closed until the storms pass.
Additional closures may be implemented at any time based on storm impacts.
Staff will assess the conditions following the storms and decide then whether these areas can be reopened for weekend use.
