Cottonwood Canyon State Park almost ready to open

September 6, 2013

The first full weekend for the park will be Sept. 28-29, and we’ll have guided hikes and activities for kids from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. Until then, enjoy some photos our staff and volunteers have taken in the last two years — the youth you see here were part of a volunteer crew working on fences and native grassland studies:

    Will the park then be open full time or what are the proposed times and schedules?

      The park will be open full time starting Sept. 28. It will be open year-round, and while I haven’t seen hours yet, most parks are open dawn to dusk. Watch the official park page for details as we get closer.

      There’s a horse trail on the Gilliam County side of the river (that’s the J.S. Burres parking lot, opposite the campground). The trail goes about 4 miles downstream (it’s a there-and-back, rather than a loop). More trails to come!

        I am looking forward to next year when there will be more trails for jorses!
