Due to heavy moisture at Curt Gowdy State Park in recent weeks, a temporary closure at the Aspen Grove trail head and the mountain trail system has been implemented.

The closure is due to extremely muddy conditions and falling trees on that section of trail. Park officials have made the closure for rider safety and to limit damage to the natural resources along the trail system. The trails will reopen once there is sufficient snow cover. A reopening announcement will be made via the Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources website. The remaining 18 miles of trail in the reservoir area of the park will remain open.
