Rifle Falls State Park and hatchery inaccessible due to road collapse on Highway 325

Deepan Dutta / Summit Daily

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is advising the public that due to significant damage to a large section of Colorado Highway 325, access to Rifle Falls State Park and Rifle Falls Fish Hatchery will remain inaccessible until further notice.

According to CDOT, a 200-foot-long by 12-foot-wide section of the northbound lane sloughed off earlier Saturday, significantly limiting access to the area.

Anyone planning to visit Rifle Falls or the Rifle Falls Fish Hatchery is asked to avoid the area and make alternative plans.

CPW will advise campers planning to stay at the park about the status of their reservation, and help find alternative locations for recreation.

For more information about Rifle Falls State Park and the Rifle Falls Fish Hatchery, contact the park at 970-625-1607.

For more information about the road and repairs, contact the Colorado Department of Transportation at 719-580-8225.
