January 2018 Government Shutdown

*UPDATE 1/20/18*: The Scenic Loop Will be open at least through the weekend!

*UPDATE 1/19/18* : Current guidance from BLM: “If there is a Federal Government ‘Shut-down’, please do not plan on the Red Rock Canyon Scenic Drive, Visitor Center, Campground, or Red Spring Picnic Area being open. We will let you know as soon as we know of our policies otherwise.”

With the government shutdown, if past shutdowns are any indicator, expect the gate to the Scenic Loop closed until further notice.

You can probably still hike around to the 1st Pullout by parking outside of the Red Spring area — but be aware people trying to walk in from the main gate area may have been ticketed in the past.

Will update with more information as it comes.
