The National Parks Service said Mountain Road is closed to vehicular travel due to “extremely high visitation and a lack of space for hikers, cyclists, and vehicles to maintain social distancing with each other,” its news release said.
Private vehicles and cyclists will not be allowed to use the road. Hikers, however, will be allowed to walk the road. The closure will remain in effect until further notice. National Parks Service said its staff will monitor the situation and reopen the road once it’s safe for everyone.
