There are new temporary trail closures in the Arapahoe National Forest, just outside of Winter Park and Fraser. The Fraser Boundary Fuels Project has moved to Vasquez Road on October 31st, 2011. This is the logging operation to mitigate the pine beetle trees by removing fuels and reducing the chance of a wildfire near the towns of Winter Park & Fraser.
- Twin Bridges & Surrounding Campsites – there will be a burn pile near the junction of Twin Bridges and Blue Sky
- Elk Meadows Area (near CR 72)
- D4 (upper section)
The Forest Service asks that everyone please respect these temporary safety closures so that loggers can complete their work and move on as quickly as possible. And for public safety, closures will remain in effect during evenings, weekends and holidays. Please follow posted signs. Maps of alternate routes and recreation areas are available at the entry points to the work areas, on the Sulphur Ranger District website and at various locations around town including bike shops and the Winter Park Visitor’s Center.
