Outdoor Center Safety Guidelines

Like a lot of things these days, there have been some changes to operations at the Outdoor Center this season. The lodge will be open to Bull Moose Cafe and retail shop patrons only, and we ask that all changing and gear storage happen at your car. The restrooms in the lodge will be open, but indoor access will be limited. All trail pass sales and rental purchases will be facilitated outdoors through the window on the north side of the lodge. Face masks covering the mouth and nose are required indoors and in all public areas at all times.
