U.S. Forest Service officials have closed off trails leading to Leigh Lake and the road servicing the Leigh Lake trailhead for the coming week. Officials issued the order to keep the public safe during blasting activities for trail maintenance and construction.

Forest Service Road 4786, which extends from Cherry Creek Road to the Leigh Lake trailhead, and National Forest Trails 132 and 132A, which lead from the trailhead to the lake, will be closed from June 10 to June 19, according to a USFS order.

Violations of the closures can be punished by a fine of not more than $5,000 for an individual or $100,000 for an organization or a term of imprisonment not exceeding six months or both.
