Evergreen Lake Trail Closures

Trail Closure Map

Evergreen Lake Trail Closed for Safety

The north side of Evergreen Lake Trail is closed between Upper Bear Creek and the Evergreen Dam due to unstable conditions. In the interest of safety, please stay off the trail, and use the alternative trail on the south side of Evergreen Lake.

Evergreen Park & Recreation District (EPRD) is working with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Evergreen Metropolitan District (EMD) and the City and County of Denver to develop a long-term solution to the problem, which was created by drainage issues that have weakened a 30-year-old bin-type retaining wall between the Evergreen Lake Trail and Highway 74. The repairs will need to be organized in cooperation with these governing entities, so the time frame to reopen the trail has yet to be determined.

We appreciate the public's cooperation and apologize for the inconvenience, and want to emphasize that public safety is EPRD's paramount concern. These images illustrate the problem:
Trail Damage
Dredging Closure
In addition, the walking trail on the north side of the lake will be closed from Lakepoint Center east to Evergreen Lake Dam for three to four months to support dredging work being done by the Evergreen Metropolitan District. The public is asked to avoid the area during weekday operations, 7 AM to 6 PM Mondays through Fridays. See more details.

South Side Still Open
The southwest trail system remains open for public use, and boating activities continue on Evergreen Lake. However, boaters are warned not to approach any dredging equipment.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Survey

Survey Results

Public Opinion Strategies recently completed a survey to gauge District residents’ support for potential ballot measures to expand recreational facilities and continue to ensure a quality recreation experience for residents of all ages. The survey results show that while people favor the idea of improving Buchanan Park Recreation Center, there is a mixed reaction to paying taxes to fund it. Read the survey results.
