Waterton Canyon will reopen Saturday, July 7. The canyon was closed today for the U.S. Forest Service to work the Mill Gulch Fire, a small 3-acre fire in Douglas County.
According to the U.S. Forest Service, lightning sparked the fire around 4 p.m. Thursday, on a ridge approximately 4.5 miles from the bottom of the canyon. The U.S. Forest Service has contained the fire, and expects to complete its work tonight.
For questions on the fire, please contact Cathleen Thompson, U.S. Forest Service, at 707-853-4243.
