Current Trail Information  

  • All​ multi-use trails in the Monument Peak and Shellburg Falls trail systems will open May 1, 2015. The trails will remain open until this fall.


  • The High Lakes Trail is open only from the Butte Creek 900 Road access point to the Butte Lakes. Both the section past the Butte Lakes and the section accessed from the Butte Creek 500 Road are closed due to active road building and timber felling operations.

Current Campground Information

  • Rock Creek sites #2-4 will be closed for an event on June 18-20 and July 10-15.
