Forest trail to Monkey Park open?

Hi! I've read on the park's website that the trail may be partially closed due to construction. Can anyone tell me what would the best way to access the park? We will be coming by train from Nagano. Thanks!

The "pass" is not being sold until the start of December, but the buses are still running and there is a detour in place once you get to the start of the forest walk - most of the walk through the forest is still there - you just walk up the road a bit further. Did the trip (lots of monkeys) about 10 days ago.

Edit, the pass is increasing as the park is increasing the price from 500 yen to 800 yen in December.

Thanks very much! Ive seen a few comments that the trail is muddy and slippery. Do we need hiking boots?

Hello,

I was just there today !! Its great, definitely go, the monkeys are active. The trail is under construction, but they are making it better, like a big walkway. It looks like they are going to pave it or gravel it. Some parts are muddy a little, but regular shoes are fine, its not bad at all. Any kind of outdoor shoe will work fine, its pretty easy..

Regular shoes - yes it is muddy in places and when the snow/ice comes it gets slippery, but not too bad. They are doing some work on the path, but not much.
