We have been asked by the land management agencies to remind everyone that
the areas affected by the Waldo Canyon fire are completely CLOSED to any
public access. This includes Rampart Reservoir, Waldo Canyon, Shubarth
Trail, Williams Canyon, Stanley Canyon, etc. While the original closure
order was valid through October 1, 2012, we have been told that it will be
extended through at least May 1, 2013, at which time it will be reevaluated.
You can find a map of the closure area by clicking here
And a copy of the closure letter by clicking here
Anyone found violating the closure will be fined $500.00, so please respect
the closure. We understand the area is being actively patrolled.
While no decisions have been made about the future uses of the area, MWTA
has the issue on our radar and we’re offering to help the Forest Service
with any trail reconstruction or new trail building over the next few years.
