U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials at Canyon Lake will temporarily close the Guadalupe Trail and the Stilling Basin Parking lots beginning today due to maintenance work.

“We understand large numbers of people use the areas to enjoy the great outdoors, but for the safety of all visitors, including pets enjoying a walk with their owner, we will be restricting access until the work is completed,” announced Canyon Lake Manager, Javier Pérez Ortiz. “Hikers are encouraged to use the Madrone Trail located at Canyon Park. Trout anglers should use the GBRA parking lot to access the river for fishing.”

USACE anticipates reopening the parking lots and trails around April 14 next year.

Canyon Lake staff members ask all visitors to practice leave-no-trace, use designated trash receptacles and always wear a life jacket while boating or anytime in or near the water.
