Eagle River Preserve vehicle access closed for the winter
Eagle County Press release

The Eagle River Preserve (ERP) is officially closed to vehicles for the winter season to allow wildlife to utilize the area as a winter habitat. Pedestrian access is still available from the Hwy. 6 and northeast gates.

Officials are reminding all ERP users not to disturb wildlife, such as deer and elk, they may encounter in the preserve. Dogs must be kept on a leash while on the property, with the exception of the off-leash area in the northeast corner of the property. However, pet owners are asked to keep dogs on a leash in all areas of the preserve if wildlife is present.

The ERP will reopen to vehicles in the spring after the snow melts and a thorough walk-through has been performed to assure public safety.
