Preventative spraying for the mountain pine beetle is expected to start in the Dowdy Lake Campground and Day-use area this week. As of Wednesday the area will be temporarily closed while spraying and potentially cutting of hazardous trees takes place.
Other temporary closures for hazardous tree cutting, especially at trailheads, could take place throughout the summer on the Canyon Lakes Ranger District. Call the Visitor Information Center at 970-295-6700 for the latest information.
