Mount Washburn Trail 2019

Yellowstone’s Mount Washburn Trail to Close in August

Yellowstone National Park’s Mount Washburn Trail and trailhead parking lot at Dunraven Pass will close this summer for improvements August 6-27, 2019.

Located 4.5 miles north of Canyon Junction, the trail and trailhead parking lot work will include the replacement of a deteriorated multi-tiered log crib that structurally supports the trail, as shown above. To replace the crib wall, trail crew will use cable rigging and fall protection systems affixed to fabricated anchorages constructed into the trail. A helicopter will deliver log pilings to the work site.

The Mount Washburn Trail from Chittenden Road will remain open.
