High water forces Yampa River Core Trail closures


— The Steamboat Springs Parks, Open Space and Recreational Services will close sections of the Yampa River Core Trail and other local trails because of high water. As of Thursday evening, these sections of trail were closed:

■ From Dougherty Road to Weiss Drive

■ Railroad underpass upstream of Fetcher Pond

■ U.S. Highway 40 underpass at Walton Creek

■ 13th Street underpass

■ Trafalgar Drive to Fetcher Pond

■ Chinook Drive to U.S. 40 underpass

■ The city asks trail users to obey all closures and not try to cross trails with water on them. Contact Craig at 970-879-4300 or crobinson@steamboatsprings.net with questions or concerns.
