Red Rock Canyon State Park issued an Emergency Closure of Nightmare Gulch on October 9, 2013. Jerry and Mary Grimsley of the Gear Grinders 4WD Club in Ridgecrest met with State Park Ranger Matt Williams to discuss the rationale for the closure. Ranger Williams indicated the Emergency Closure was issued as a result of recent storm damage which has rendered the canyon impassable to vehicles. He indicated the closure is temporary; however, before any trail repair can be performed an environmental assessment is required. This whole process could take many months.
