May not be that bad, but depends on where you riding. Up around Boulder, we're still OK for the time being. Not sure about Rampart, I just assume that it's close as well as Woodland Park. BTW, heard that Taylor Park may close for the season too, I'm going to try to make it to TP as soon as poossible. Pike is closed, not sure about the other places though.........Sorry, wish I could be more help...........

The southern end of Rampart (Trout Creek) was touched again but otherwise intact.
All of Pike, San Isabel and one I'm forgetting are closed at the moment. Taylor Park is still open for now.

Last I checked, San Isabel is still open. Pike is closed in Douglas, Jefferson, Park, Teller, and El Paso counties for all uses. For information, go to www.fs.fed.us and select the national forest that you want info on. I would also suggest that you call the particular forest office for the latest, you can also find their phone numbers at the above site.

My neighbors went out last week and he checked the web and it said that SI was closed to OHV use. Maybe it's reopened since last weekend, or he/I misread the printout. What I read was that all of Pike, SI, and parts of the San Luis Valley were all closed for OHV use.
Like you said, best to check with the local authorities before venturing out.
