(PUEBLO, Colo.) — Recent heavy rainfall has prompted the closure of the Fountain Creek Trail by the City of Pueblo Parks and Recreation Department.

The City of Pueblo said the affected area is on the northside of Cesar Chavez Boulevard and is approximately 650 feet in length. The Fountain Creek Trail downstream from the Loaf n’ Jug at 4000 Jerry Murphy to where the trail splits north of Cesar Chavez Boulevard will be closed until further notice due to a section of trail being washed out.
