    I'm going over Los Pinos tommorow.
    10k' is clear elsewhere and so I expect it to be good.

    Both passes were fine this past weekend. We had several riders take that route.
    Rivers are still running high in Colorado so creek crossings should be approached and checked carefully before entering.

    I was riding through cinnamon on Sunday morning...a road & trail work truck turned me around.
    He said it was serious.... and the photos show he wasn’t exaggerating.
    Luckily I wasn’t there a day earlier...

    Engineer pass was the easy reroute.

    On another note. The road crews on cottonwood pass told me they also had a landslide....

    Los Pinos was open and clear as was Hagerman. Nice big water crossing but not too deep.

    Also went over Cumberland Pass just fine.

    Hinsdale County Office of Emergency Management:

    Cinnamon Pass/CR 30 will be open tomorrow, Saturday, August 10. Thank you Hinsdale County Road and Bridge for all the hard work!

    Expect temporary delays next week while road and bridge replaces culverts.

    Be cautious while driving in the back country! Weather can change quickly and heavy rain can affect road conditions. Be prepared for any situation.
