East Portal Road closed for winter

Icy conditions from the latest round of winter storms have moved the Bureau of Reclamation to close the East Portal Road for the winter.

The road, reached from the South Rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, provides access to the Gunnison River and Crystal Dam within the Curencanti National Recreation Area.

The road will reopen next spring when road and weather conditions allow.
