Mount Washburn Trail Closing Later This Summer

Written by on June 6, 2019

A popular trail in Yellowstone National Park will be closed to visitors later this summer.

The Mount Washburn Trail and trailhead parking lot at Dunraven Pass will close for three weeks in August for improvements. The trailhead is located 4 and a half miles north of Canyon Junction.

Park officials say the closure is necessary for public safety and will include the replacement of a deteriorated multi-tiered log crib that structurally supports the trail. Crews will use cable rigging and fall protection systems, and a helicopter will deliver log pilings to the work site.

The Mount Washburn Trail from Chittenden Road will remain open.
