The High Park Fire is 100% contained, but the fire is still smoldering  in some areas and there are still some closures in effect. A closure order remains in effect on a portion of the Roosevelt National Forest west of Fort Collins.According to a press release from the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests:

The current closure prohibits all activities within an area of the Canyon Lakes Ranger District bounded by County Road 44H on the south, the High Park Fire northern perimeter on the north, the forest boundary on the east, and the Pingree Park Road on the west.

This closure restricts dispersed recreation on the lands identified, including rock climbing, biking and hiking. The closure includes some campgrounds, trails, and Forest Service Roads. Trails are expected to be closed until rehabilitation work can be completed. Those developed areas still closed include:

  • Young Gulch Trail
  • Diamond Rock Picnic Area
  • Upper Ansel Watrous Campground
  • Bennett Creek Picnic Sites
  • Hewlett Gulch Trail
  • Monument Gulch Road
  • West White Pine Road
  • Mountain Park Campground
  • Greyrock/Greyrock Meadows Trails
  • Old Flowers Road
  • Mount McConnel/Kruetzer Trails
