Heavy rains “raising havoc” with Monument

Heavy rains “raising havoc” with Monument

Scotts Bluff National Monument Superintendent Dan Morford says the heavy rains are “raising havoc” with the Monument, and the middle of Saddle Rock Trail remains closed for safety reason.

Morford says three mudslides and falling rocks  releasing from the top of the monument  are causing  the center section to be fenced  because of safety concerns.

Morford says some of the rocks releasing on the trail are two to three feet in diameter, and leaving 12-18 inch depressions on the trail and “it is just not safe.”

He emphasizes those walking on the bottom and top of the trail need to adhere to the closure. A reassessment will be done Thursday after  drier weather.
