Current Conditions of the Road

Flash Flood Damage Closes Central Section of Medano Road
Wet ash/debris flows over 3 feet (1m) tall have covered the road in sections of Medano Canyon, making it unsafe and impassible. Park staff will continue working with heavy equipment over the next few days to clear and reopen the road. The road is closed between Castle Creek Picnic Area (3 miles from the western entrance of the road) and Campsite 3.2 (3 miles west of Medano Pass). Seven campsites in the upper portion of the road are open. The Medano Lake Trailhead is currently only accessible via Highway 69 in the Wet Mountain Valley. The road closure applies to both vehicle and foot traffic.
