Eagle River Preserve vehicle access closed for winter season

Eagle County Parks
Dec. 12, 2013 The Eagle River Preserve (ERP) is now closed to vehicles for the season to allow wildlife to utilize the area as a winter habitat. The property is still open for recreational and pedestrian use and a new parking area has been constructed at the top of the U.S. Hwy 6 entrance, outside of the gate.

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 lower parking area of the ERP will reopen to vehicles in the spring after the snow melts and a walk-through has been performed to assure public safety. For more information, contact Eagle County Open Space Director Toby Sprunk at 970-328-8698.
