COTTONWOOD CanyonS Road Information //

Plan ahead by checking out the traffic dashboard, the UDOT Traffic Cameras in each canyon, digital signs and road weather forecasts. 

Each resort in the Cottonwood Canyons has individual visitor management policies and parking systems, but all have digital signs at the mouth of the canyons to notify visitors of their parking lots status (limited, full, etc.). Please read these signs before driving up.
