Eldorado National Forest Begins Reopening Developed Day Use Recreation Sites

Placerville, CA...The Eldorado National Forest is increasing access to the public by providing additional developed day use recreational opportunities with limited services. Restroom facilities will open as soon as personnel can mobilize and safety and cleaning supplies are obtained. We encourage visitors to check our website and social media pages for the most up-to-date information on what is open so that you can plan your visit. You can also call your local ranger station during normal business hours Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We continue to recommend that you recreate locally. All visitors should practice self-sufficiency during your visits to national forests. Recreating responsibly will help ensure that expanded access to recreational facilities, services, and opportunities continues. Responsible recreation practices should be maintained at all times, including:

• Maintaining at least six feet distancing from others.
• Do not gather in groups and please follow the latest guidance from officials.
• Communicate with others as you pass. Alert trail users of your presence and step aside to let others pass.
• Pack out your trash and leave with everything you bring in and use.
• All services may not be available, particularly restrooms and trash removal, so please plan accordingly.

The following developed recreation sites will reopen on the Eldorado National Forest beginning Saturday, May 16, 2020:

· Alder Creek Day Use Area
· Capps Crossing Day Use Area
· Traverse Creek Day Use Area
· East Slab Creek Reservoir Day Use Area
· Cedar Park Trailhead
