The U.S. Forest Service Pike National Forest-South Park Ranger District said Thursday that is temporarily closing all facilities at a popular rest stop for travelers on U.S. Highway 24.
The Wilkerson Pass Visitor Center, located between Lake George and Hartsel in Park County, is closing restrooms and the visitor center for unspecified repairs. It is unclear when the facilities will reopen.
"We understand that Wilkerson Pass Visitor Center is a popular tourist rest stop and closing it indefinitely has an impact on our public," South Park Ranger Josh Voorhis said in a news release. "We ask for your patience as we determine the extent of the necessary facility repairs."
Call the South Park Ranger District at 836-2031 for more information.
