Knox Mountain Drive hours changing for the winter season

November 26, 2019
Public service announcement

With sub-zero temperatures sweeping in, the upper portion of Knox Mountain Drive (Gate 2, above the lower parking lot) is closing for the season effective today.

Knox Mountain Drive closes annually due to poor winter driving conditions and a full closure is expected once the park sees snow and ice at lower elevations. The roadway becomes increasingly hazardous due to precipitation and colder temperatures. The road will remain closed to public vehicles until the spring.

Park trails will remain open to those on foot or bike from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Park users are advised to be cautious as the road and pathways will not be cleared of snow or ice throughout the winter.

Park users are reminded to keep their dogs on-leash, except once inside the off-leash dog park, south of Knox Mountain Drive.
