Here’s an update from County of Los Angeles Department of Parks & Recreation: Because of overcrowding, Eaton Canyon will be closed through Memorial Day.🚨 Eaton Canyon Natural Areas and Trails are closed for the rest of today and for Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, due to overwhelming crowds that were not following the COVID-19 public health requirements. The closure includes the Eaton Canyon natural areas, trails, trailhead, parking lot, nature center, and all gates. No walk-ins are allowed.

In preparation for this weekend, LA County Parks had set safety precautions, including 15 trail monitors, nature center staff, additional department staff and increased patrolling and enforcement by the Parks Sheriff Bureau, including horse-mounted patrols within the park. Despite these best efforts by the County, the large number of visitors to Eaton Canyon this weekend have made it evident that many people are not practicing key requirements and recommendations set forth by Public Health and supported by LA County Parks such as wearing face coverings, physical distancing and avoiding crowded areas.

The health and safety of our trail users, park guests, team members, and community are the top priority. 📢 COVID-19 health guidelines are required; click here to review parks.lacounty.gov/covid-19/
