Picnic Area still CLOSED

Tried to visit this place today 6JUL2021, as previous visits the last couple of months have always been closed. Not sure why the location is still closed off. The weather is great, the other trail entrance is packed, even on weekdays, but this area is still blocked off.

About This Campground

Overview

Cathedral Rock Group Picnic Area is located at the top of beautiful Kyle Canyon in the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, just 30 miles from Las Vegas. Visitors enjoy hiking, horseback riding and scenic driving in this forested desert oasis.

Natural Features:

The Spring Mountains National Recreation Area is a beautiful island in the desert, brimming with breathtaking scenery and diverse flora and fauna. The Bristlecone pine, the worlds oldest organism, and the rare Mount Charleston blue butterfly are both found within the Spring Mountains.

Over 100 springs create the namesake for the mountain range, creating the perfect place to escape the heat of the city.

The picnic area is set among a forest of ponderosa pine, white fir, aspen, mountain mahogany and Gambel oak, which provides partial shade. The area affords views of the surrounding Spring Mountains.

Recreation:

No trails can be accessed through the Picnic Area at the present time. Trails may be found at the Forest Service Trailhead on the other end of Cathedral Rock Picnic Area. The new Spring Mountain Visitor Center is a 15 minute drive down the canyon, with guided hikes and educational programs.

Facilities:

The picnic area is for day-use only. Two group sites are available, both with large picnic tables, serving tables, grills and cement site pads. Parking areas are paved. Vault toilets, drinking water, trash collection are provided.

Nearby Attractions:

More than 60 miles of hiking and horseback riding trails crisscross the area; two trails allow mountain biking. Rock climbing, picnicking and scenic driving are popular activities.
