Recreation Access Closure - Cameron Connector

The Cameron Connector road will remain closed this weekend as the contractor is worried that a log could dislodge and hit the road. The gate on this road off Highway 4 will be locked.


The roads on Pass have been plowed so if you wish to partake in winter activities this would be an excellent opportunity.

The Gulch (Cam100) gate is open for people to access the area.
