Mud Closures on Forest Lands
WET and MUDDY CONDITIONS KEEPING SOME FOREST SYSTEM ROADS and TRAILS TEMPORARILY CLOSED on SOUTH PLATTE RANGER DISTRICT
MORRISON, Colo., March 29, 2016 – Several roads and trails in Douglas County normally open to motorized use on the South Platte Ranger District will temporarily close Friday, April 1 to protect them from resource damage due to wet and muddy conditions.
The temporary closure includes roads and trails primarily in the Rampart Range Motorized Recreation Area. Beginning on the north end of the Rampart Range Road #300 near the Indian Creek Campground, southwest of Sedalia, continuing south to the junction with the Fern Creek Road #351.
Signs have been posted to alert users of the restrictions. Forest personnel will patrol the area to ensure enforcement.
Scott Dollus, Recreation Planner on South Platte District Ranger, said, “The cooperation of recreational motorized users is greatly appreciated in protecting our natural resources. The affected areas will be monitored and opened as soon as conditions allow and trails are cleared of downed trees.”
