Road Closure Reminder:
The final road to Kelly Canyon is officially closed and should no longer be used! The Forest Service has made it clear that users should no longer be driving all the way to the old trailhead. Giant boulders now guard the road but incompetent users have begun to drive around this closure. Please respect this closure and DO NOT drive off road to avoid the road closure. DONT BE LAZY, PARK AT THE ROAD CLOSURE!! This will effect our overall access to this amazing area. The extra hike only takes a few minutes!
