Waldo Canyon opens, but access difficult

Posted: Updated:
EL PASO COUNTY -

Going into Waldo Canyon is no longer off-limits. Only access is much more difficult than before the fire forced closure five years ago. The parking lot and trailhead on Highway 24 will remain closed out of concerns for public safety.

It means if you want to go into Waldo Canyon you have to find your own route away from Highway 24. The Forest Service announcement about the opening says, “Public accessing the area should use caution and be prepared for cross-country hiking over rough terrain and debris from the 2012 wildfire.”

The new order also maintains the no camping and campfire rules.
