Update 10/23/2019 – The Chutes Trails remains closed. City Parks plan to make an announcement in the next day or two on when it will reopen.
The Chutes trail will be closed for construction starting on Tuesday Oct 8, 2019. The closure will last approximately 2 weeks, weather dependent. Once the work is complete the trail will be re-opened as a dedicated downhill bike trail, included the upper chutes DH trail.
Trail users will still be able to use the Chutes and Ladders to access Gold Camp Road from Stratton Open Space, and hikers have the additional option on the Gold Camp Path. The Ladders extension and re-routing is open from the Chamberlain trail up to the parking lot on Gold Camp Road. Watch for 2 way traffic on the Ladders – as usual, MTB riders travelling downhill must yield to all other users.
