Wild Basin Road Will Be Closed To All Uses For Road Maintenance July 18-July 21

June 14, 2023  |  Wild Basin Road

Beginning Tuesday, July 18, through Friday, July 21, the Wild Basin Road in Rocky Mountain National Park will be closed to all uses, including vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians for road maintenance. This closure will occur at the Wild Basin Entrance Station and will include the entire two-mile section of the road to the Wild Basin Trailhead.

The park’s roads crew will be spreading gravel and grading this narrow road to address ruts, potholes and help with drainage. Due to the road being closed to all uses from July 18 through July 21, visitors should avoid this area of Rocky Mountain National Park during this time.

The trailhead parking area for the Sandbeach Lake Trail will not be impacted by this closure.

Temporary closures for road maintenance will create a safer environment for maintenance workers, and a safer experience for vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians using the road after repairs are completed.
