After a lengthy closure, Harmon Canyon Preserve re-opened to the public on Friday, April 7.
This is a partial re-opening. The preserve will be open up to the 1.5 mile mark. The upper canyon of the preserve will remain closed for repairs. Here are a few important reminders as you return to the preserve:
Please stay on roads and trails. Off-trail travel to look at those beautiful wildflowers degrades sensitive habitat.
Do not walk in creek channels except at designated crossings. Please do not build rock bridges in the creeks or move or throw rocks. Exercise caution when crossing creeks.
Dogs are allowed, and must be on-leash.
No e-bikes are allowed at Harmon Canyon Preserve. All cyclists must wear a helmet.
Leave extra time for parking. We expect the preserve to be busy. Overflow parking is available on Kimball Road.
VLT’s conservation of Harmon Canyon Preserve and all of our protected open spaces is based on thoughtful, sustainable stewardship.
We appreciate your trust and support of our work to protect these cherished natural landscapes, and your patience while we made repairs to public access infrastructure.
Support is still needed while we restore roads and trails in Harmon Canyon Preserve. Give to the Repair & Recovery Fund today.
