CARLSBAD — Sitting Bull Falls has reopened to the public following a temporary closure due to staffing shortages.

Effective Friday, Oct. 13, Sitting Bull Falls Recreation Area, a historic recreation site located in the Guadalupe Ranger District in the Lincoln National Forest, will reopen under modified hours. The site closed Sept. 27 due to ongoing staffing issues.

Modified hours will be 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Normal hours will resume once full-time personnel are hired.

“This is a temporary solution that will allow visitors to enjoy Sitting Bull Falls while we continue to work towards a permanent staffing solution that will allow us to reopen on our normal seasonal hours,” said Jennifer Thomas, Guadalupe District ranger.

An announcement will be made to the public once regular hours resume.
