“Waterton Canyon is an extremely popular recreation destination, and we recognize that the five-day closure is an inconvenience,” said Brandon Ransom, manager of recreation for Denver Water, in a statement. “By taking the time to reduce the dust early in the season, however, we’ll provide a better experience for hikers, bikers and runners throughout the rest of the summer.”

Hikers and bikers on the Colorado Trail should seek alternative access points, which can be found at
