As part of ongoing wildfire risk mitigation forestry work, we will close the trail connector that provides access to the Mesa Trail and Mallory Cave on weekdays from Monday, August 27 to September 28. This closure is a safety measure to reduce risk to the public and forestry workers while tree thinning takes place. The trail closure is in effect from 7:00 am on Monday morning until 4:30 pm on Friday afternoon each week. The Walter Orr Roberts Weather Trail remains open. The Mesa trail connector will be open on weekends and for Labor Day on Monday, September 3. Hikers are advised to choose alternate routes to access city of Boulder open space and the Mesa trail on weekdays during the closure. Dates of closure are subject to change due to weather.
