  • Alpine Plateau Road Winter Closure Order

    The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests have issued a closure order for the Alpine Plateau Road (NFSR 867) from December 1, 2019 to May 15, 2020.

    • The closure area begins approximately 6 miles south of U.S. Highway 50, immediately south of the intersection of Alpine Plateau Road and Arrowhead Properties’ “Winter Trailhead” interior road.
    • Mid and full-sized vehicles are prohibited within the closure area. Non-licensed off-highway vehicles less than 60” wide and vehicles designed to operate over-snow may still travel within the closure, although extreme caution is advised.
    • This closure has been enacted for public health and safety, along with resource protection due to hazardous winter driving conditions and increased logging traffic.
