Mount Washburn trails and trailhead parking lots from Dunraven Pass and Chittenden Road will close Thursday, July 12, at 12 a.m. The closures will remain in effect for the duration of the season.
These closures are necessary for public safety during several important projects. Yellowstone has more than 900 miles of hiking trails. In lieu of Mount Washburn, consider hiking Bunsen Peak near Mammoth Hot Springs, Purple Mountain north of Madison Junction, or Avalanche Peak along the East Entrance Road.
