NEW INFORMATION FOR AFFECTED RESIDENTS as of 09/29/2013
The trail between Bobcat Ridge and Storm Mountain re-opens today for local residents affected by the floodand will remain open as weather and trail conditions allow. The trail will be open during daylight hours only.
The trail traverses private property and will be monitored for the potential of damage that moisture and increased traffic may cause. Anticipate that the trail will close temporarily going forward when conditions warrant. When using the trail, residents are asked to limit vehicular traffic to off-road vehicles only, to stay on the trail to respect the adjoining private property, and to leave gates in their found condition. It is important to limit avoidable damage to the trail and to remain on the trail to keep the trail open for those that need it.
Resident credentials are required for anyone going behind all checkpoints and roadblocks into flood affected areas. The Sheriff’s Office will continue to remain at the gate at Bobcat Ridge to credential those needing access to their properties via this route.
Individuals found behind the checkpoints and roadblocks without credentials will be cited. Patrols will be active in all areas. The Larimer County Sheriff's Office Posse is now patrolling the remote areas on horseback.
