Is it true that the Inca Trail will be closed at some point during the year?

The Inca Trail will be closed during the month of February each year, which is the height of the wet season. The last group will depart on January 31st and the next group will start on March 1st. The closure is to allow conservation projects to take place, give an opportunity for camping facilities to be improved and to allow the vegetation to grow back. The ruins of Machu Picchu will remain open as normal as will the train services between Cusco and Machu Picchu.
