A portion of the Crag Crest National Recreation Trail will be temporarily closed until July 21. This closure will prohibit public access from the east trailhead at the Crag Crest Campground along the lower loop to the intersection at Butts Lake. Portions of the trail will still be accessible from the west trailhead.

The closure will allow for the installation of temporary roads and a bridge for the Grand Mesa Resort timber salvage sale, an estimated two-year removal of beetle-affected and blowdown timber. The timber salvage will remove potentially hazardous fuels from an area with many summer cabins, and will improve overall forest health by opening the forest for new growth, improving species and age class diversity. When this portion of the trail is re-opened, the public is asked to provide a wide berth to timber crews and machinery.
