Several canyons in Utah County will remain closed through the coming Memorial Day Weekend and at least into June.
*** PRESS RELEASE - CANYON CLOSURE UPDATE May 23, 2019 ***
The U.S. Forest Service gave updates related to several canyon closures in Utah County. This release only updates a few of those, but the link below is the previous release and that information remains the same.
-Nebo Loop Road: Parts of the Nebo Loop Road are open. The road is open from south end of the road to Devils Kitchen. The road is also open from Payson to the Old Ski Lift parking, 2 miles from Payson Lakes. Anticipated opening is June 10, but that date is dependent upon weather.
-Santaquin Canyon Road is open to the Trumbolt Day use area. It is closed at Trumbolt due to the large avalanche in the canyon. Forest Service crews are working with Utah County to remove debris as the snow melts. Anticipated opening is June 10, but that date is dependent upon weather.
-Alpine Loop Road and other roads above Tibble Fork remain closed. The Forest Service anticipates opening these roads some time in June but a date is not estimated. The attached photo is from the area of Timpooneke Trailhead and campground. There is still a large volume of snow that needs to melt.
