Yellowstone National Park's Mount Washburn Trail and trailhead parking lot at Dunraven Pass will close for improvements Aug. 6-27.
The trail and trailhead parking lot is located 4.5 miles north of Canyon Junction.
The closure is necessary for public safety while a deteriorated multi-tiered log crib that structurally supports the trail is replaced.
To replace the crib wall, a trail crew will use cable rigging and fall protection systems affixed to fabricated anchorages constructed into the trail. A helicopter will deliver log pilings to the work site.
The Mount Washburn Trail from Chittenden Road will remain open.
