Even though the roads east of US 36 have reopened, the trail system remains closed.

That includes everything on Boulder Valley Ranch, the Foothills trail, the Left Hand Trail and the Eagle Trail.

Here is a link that has the trail advisory... it will be updated when the situation changes.

There is no anticipated reopen date/time. It is likely that there will be off trail restrictions on the burn areas that last until spring, as the land looks like hell after a burn and it gets trampled afterward.

For those of you who were watching the video yesterday, there was a long barn that burned up spectcularly north of Neva and east of US 36. This was an old turkey barn that OSMP had been trying to get dismantled for some time. So this was actually a welcome demolition.

When I find out that the trails have reopened, I'll post it.

Heil/Hall open

Fire did not go north of Left Hand Canyon Drive. No impact to Heil/Hall aka North Foothills Open Space.

Affected area is approximately junction of US36 and Broadway to the south, and Nebo Road to the north. Not sure about east, but Old Stage Road is the west boundary.

Trails will be closed till Monday at the earliest

The fire commander has asked OSMP to keep the place shut down to do mop up and assessment till at least Monday.

On Monday, or when the fire commander allows, OSMP resource staff will go onsite to assess the damage and possible steps necessary to reopen the trails.

It's not OSMP that is dragging their feet, it's the fire management people.

Ride Marshall Mesa instead.
