Colorado was greatly impacted by heavy September rains, and the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland (ARP) is among those areas affected by the flood. Due to heavy rains and saturated soils the ARP officials have closed some roads, trails, and facilities on the Boulder and Canyon Lakes ranger districts. Please use caution in all rain affected areas. See the links below for the most up-to-date information on forest impacts.
Young Gulch Trail: These photos show the amount of damage done to this popular trail south of the Poudre Canyon on the Canyon Lakes Ranger District. All five miles of this trail received damage, with the first two miles fairing the worst.
