Eagle River Preserve open for summer

Contact: Ron Siebert, Project Manager, 970-328-8881 or ron.siebert@eaglecounty.us  

The Eagle River Preserve is now open to vehicles from dawn to dusk daily, following a closure to allow for winter wildlife habitat and installation of a pond liner this spring. County officials are offering a few reminders to ensure enjoyment of the property by all users:

  • Please stay on established paths. The vegetation is still young and developing. Be especially mindful of sensitive vegetation along the river bank. 
  • Dogs should be kept on a leash, except when in the designated dog area.
  • Pack out personal trash and any litter found. Trash containers are provided at the parking area.
  • Review posted signs and rules. 

The Eagle River Preserve includes approximately 72 acres west of downtown Edwards. The former gravel pit will be available for complete public access upon completion of the restoration. Phase one is complete and includes a walking trail, benches, an off-leash dog area, access to the Eagle River for fishing and a small pond.
