Boggy Draw construction closures, limited access planned for November
Dolores, Colo., Oct. 30, 2023 —The Dolores Ranger District will be expanding the Boggy Draw parking lot beginning Nov. 1. The project north of Dolores includes construction of new trailer parking and full-sized vehicle spaces as well as gravel, drainage, fencing and cattle guard work. Site preparation for a new bathroom facility will also occur during construction.
The parking lot and access to the Boggy Draw and Maverick trailheads will be temporarily closed for up to two weeks during construction. Visitors should also expect short term road closures during construction activities. An alternative parking location 1/2 mile east of the construction zone is available off Forest Service Road 527. Alternate access points to the Boggy Draw and Maverick trails are available via FSR 527. See the attached map for alternative parking and trail access points.
