Visitor Information

Mount Jumbo North and South Zones Now Open
Warm spring temperatures have provided Mount Jumbo’s elk herd with lots of good forage in the high country--and so the herd has moved on to its summer range. Parks officials have re-opened Mount Jumbo's North Zone to public use, about a week ahead of the scheduled May 1 opening date.

All areas north of Mount Jumbo Saddle Road, including the 3.8-mile North Loop, are now open to the public. Dogs must be under strict voice and sight control and may not chase or harass wildlife and livestock. Jumbo’s North Zone is accessible via the trailhead at Upper Lincoln Hills Drive. For a complete map of Mount Jumbo and all City open space, purchase the a Parks, Trails and Open Space map at Currents Aquatics Center for $4.

Pet owners are asked to respect conservation lands, adjacent private property, other park visitors and wildlife by controlling their dogs at all times and removing their pet's waste. Pet owners may not allow their dogs to chase, attack or harass wildlife or livestock grazing on City open space.  Free Mutt Mitts and loaner leashes are provided at trailheads.
