PLEASANT GROVE — Mt. Timpanogos campground located on the Squaw Peak road has been closed until further notice due to extreme flooding, according to the U.S. Forest Service. It will remain closed until the potential for flooding has decreased and it is safe to open.
All other campgrounds in the area are open except Rock Canyon, which is not accessible due to a landslide. All picnic areas are open. American Fork River is still running swift, so parents should keep children and pets away, forest service officials advise. The Shaffer Fork and Timpooneke roads are still closed.
Most trails are dry at lower elevations, but at higher elevations trails become wet and muddy and snow packed. Snow may continue to block access along shaded portions of trails, and hikers should be aware of snow crevasses and bridges. Water may be flowing underneath melting and eroding snow bridges.
The Pleasant Grove Ranger District office can provide additional information.
