Waterton Canyon Closure

Waterton Canyon will be closed through the end of this week for Denver Water’s annual dust mitigation maintenance.

Weekday access to Waterton Canyon will be closed Monday, May 8th through Friday, May 19th. During the closure, neither the parking lot or the canyon entrance will be accessible.

As a working facility, there are times when operations and maintenance projects create unsafe conditions for the public, prompting us to close trail access. Denver Water performs maintenance projects like this one to provide for a better experience throughout the canyon by creating optimal conditions for a family-friendly hiking and biking experience.

Colorado Trail users are advised to plan alternate routes during this time. As a reminder to the public, this is a working facility and at times operations create unsafe conditions for the public resulting in temporary closures.
