Very High Winds Knock Down Myriad Trees

Rocky Mountain National Park

National Park News

Extremely high winds and micro bursts that hit the area between last Saturday evening and early Sunday morning blew down numerous trees in the park. Winds were estimated to be between 70 and 90 miles per hour, with even stronger micro bursts. Many of the trees that blew down were not beetle-killed trees, but were old, large ponderosa pines. Sprague Lake is temporarily closed as park staff continue to cut trees that have fallen on the access road leading to Sprague Lake from Bear Lake Road. Tuxedo Park, a picnic area located along Bear Lake Road, is also closed due to numerous fallen trees
