Fork Fire Closure

The Rubicon Trail is currently CLOSED within the Eldorado National Forest. Ice House Road is closed north of the intersection of Wentworth Springs Road.

The Eldorado National Forest has issued a closure for the area around the Fork Fire for through November 30th. It’s HUGE and way bigger than it needs to be.

I do not see ELD-147 and ELD-63 (and the side trails) listed in the closure order. But with Ice House closed, we can’t get there.

I’m trying to deal with facts and evidence to back it up. Here is a link to the video of last night’s meeting. At about the 24 minute mark in the video below, the question is asked “is the Rubicon open” and the answer is no, not within the Eldorado Forest.

This closure is wrong. The area is too large and I see it as an attack on OHV.

I don’t know how we should push back on this closure but we need to push back and in a very strong manner.
