REOPEN: Deer Creek Canyon Park and Black Bear Trail are now open following an investigation by Colorado Parks and Wildlife regarding an incident with a mountain lion. The incident involved a mountain biker who came across a mountain lion that showed aggressive body language. This was not an attack. The suspected cat has had multiple interactions with park visitors over the last few weeks. CPW investigated the incident and attempted to trap the cat but was unsuccessful. It is assumed that the mountain lion is more than likely still in the vicinity and park visitors are encouraged to be prepared.

Keep pets leashed, children close, and recreate in small groups, if possible. If you see a mountain lion, stand your ground and don’t run. Be big, loud, and use anything at your disposal to maintain space between you and the lion. If attacked, fight back. Call 911 in an emergency and please report all mountain lion sightings or activity to Colorado Parks & Wildlife via Colorado State Patrol's non-emergency number:
303 239 4545.​
