Trail and Facility Updates

Current Trail Information  

  • All​ multi-use trails in the Monument Peak and Shellburg Falls trail systems are currently closed to both mountain bikes and horses. This closure is in effect to protect the trails from erosion and damage during the rainy season. The trails will re-open this spring. All trails are still open to hiking.


  • 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. They will be closed until further notice.
