Colorado Springs: North Cheyenne Cañon Park Closed Monday for Road Repairs

~ In preparation for upcoming trail improvements, North Cheyenne Cañon Park will be temporarily closed to the public starting on Monday, April 8. This closure includes all vehicles and trail users, as announced by Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS) staff.

The closure is necessary for repair work on Gold Camp Road, specifically in the scree field that connects it to North Cheyenne Canyon Road. Due to the potential danger of falling rocks and debris onto the road below, PRCS staff have deemed it necessary to close the park for the safety of all visitors.

Once the park reopens, Gold Camp Road will remain closed to public vehicles but will be accessible to hikers and bikers until mid-April for ongoing road maintenance and the Ladders Trail project. All vehicles must enter North Cheyenne Cañon Park through North Cheyenne Canyon Road.

This temporary closure is a necessary step in ensuring the safety of park visitors and improving the overall experience in North Cheyenne Cañon Park. The PRCS staff encourages everyone to plan accordingly and use alternative routes during this time.
