Update: August 2 at 3 p.m.
According to a post from Palo Duro Canyon State Park, as of Tuesday, trails at the canyon are still closed until further notice after the park received heavy rainfall over the weekend.
Officials stated that closing trails helps preserve the trail system’s structural integrity as well as giving crews time to replace washed out bridges and water crossings along the trail. Even if a trail seems dry, it may be wet further down the trail.
