We rode from Telluride via Ophir, 550, Owl Creek pass, Blue Mesa cutoff
Major afternoon rains every day in the mountains
I'm going over Los Pinos tommorow.
10k' is clear elsewhere and so I expect it to be good.
Anyone think they can get around that?
Ouch that's nasty.
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....
Not a problem if your name happens to be Graham Jarvis....
Los Pinos was open and clear as was Hagerman. Nice big water crossing but not too deep.
Also went over Cumberland Pass just fine.
Any other updates on Cottonwood Pass? Thanks.
I heard open mid August but still traffic controled so slow.
This is the latest article about 3 weeks ago that it's still scheduled for Aug 12 but the paving won't be done. So be prepared for flagged traffic.
Any updates on Cinnamon Pass?
Have not seen any local news about reopening.
