Palmer Red Rock Loop Closed

Palmer Red Rock Loop Closed

Palmer Red Rock loop is closed because of a major rock slide at Hunters Run over Memorial Day weekend. The hillside and boulders above the trail are unstable, making the area unsafe. The trail is closed from High Drive to the Section 16 trail, about a 3.5 mile section.  The trail passes through both Forest Service and Colorado Springs Parks land, with the damaged area in Forest Service land. Forest Service is evaluating what to do, and says to check their web site for information.
