As of March 17, 2017, the Big Falls recreational area is open again. Visitors need to park in the lot below the picnic area. An Adventure Pass is required for most of the parking area. Adventure passes can be purchased at Mill Creek Ranger Station.
Effective 12:00 noon on Wednesday, March 15 2017, we will no longer be accepting wilderness permit requests received via email. Only permit requests received via fax or postal mail will be accepted. For those who do not have access to a fax machine, there are numerous online services that allow you to fax from your computer.
Our fax number and mailing address may be found on the permit application.
As of March 5, both Vivian and Momyer trailheads are open. There is parking at Momyer only. The Big Falls/Vivian parking is still closed due to a large ice/gravel berm. Forest Service is working on getting it cleared. If you have any questions, please call the Mill Creek Ranger Station.
Thank you to all the attendees who joined us at the Banff Film Festival last night in Redlands. We sold out the theater and sadly had to turn some away. It was a great show – plan to join us next time!
