UPDATE 5/7/20: The Bureau of Land Management announced fire restrictions for southern Nevada. These restrictions prohibit visitors from starting or using campfires & charcoal grills, smoking outside a vehicle, launching fireworks, and more. Click here for further details.

The health and safety of staff and visitors in these facilities is our number one priority. Our website has maps & lists all official trails, including those not inside the closure areas, however they tend to reach capacity by mid-morning each day.

We continue to remind our visitors to follow the CDC’s guidance to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, including maintaining social distancing, covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and staying home if you feel sick. Visitors are encouraged to “pack it in and pack it out” as future trash removal may be limited due to limited staff availability in some areas.

Please review the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics recommendations for getting outside during COVID-19.
