The road at the base of the switchbacks is now open at Makoshika State Park.
Re-opening this road will provide access to the Cap Rock Trail, Amphitheater and Pine On Rocks Campground. The road will remain closed to motorized vehicles beyond the saddle and spur roads until conditions improve and road grading is completed, but these closed areas are open for nonmotorized use.
The road was closed on Nov. 20 due to inclement weather.
