Snowmass Briefs: Spring trail closures approaching
Last chance to explore Tom Blake, Anaerobic Nightmare trails before summer
SPRING TRAIL OPENINGS AND CLOSURES IN APRIL
Snowmass Village hikers have three weeks left to explore trails in the Burnt Mountain area between Buttermilk and Snowmass before several trails close April 25 for elk calving season.
The Tom Blake Trail, Sequel Trail and other trails in the Elk Camp and Two Creeks vicinity will close April 25 through June 20; Anaerobic Nightmare and surrounding lands will close April 25 through June 27. The Government Trail and Sugarbowl area will close later this spring, from May 15 through June 27.
The South Rim Trail, as well as the Highline and Lowline trails in Sky Mountain Park, remain open year-round. The North Rim Trail, Seven Star Trail and all other trails in Sky Mountain Park reopen May 16 after season-long closures implemented to protect local wildlife seeking winter refuge before the calving season.
The full length of the Brush Creek Trail connecting Highway 82 to Snowmass Village reopened April 1 to human users. No dogs are permitted on the trail until May 16.
