I am riding this route with a group at the end of July. I understand there is a section of the route closed near the Cottonwood Pass area on section 3 to Buena Vista. Although there is an ALT Route identified south of Pitkin we noticed another route that turns east where the route comes through Tin Cup. The road starts out as CR267 and connects to another of other forest roads. Does anybody know anything about this route? It looks ok when viewing it by google earth....but I've been fooled before. We have 4 bikes and a side by side in the group. Any feedback would be appreciated.
