The closure is indefinite and could easily last several years, possibly even forever.

​​​​​​This is somewhere between Carbonado and the park boundary.



Search and Rescue report that the people in the car were not harmed.

One of my favorite rides from Buckley to the Carbon River bridge leading to Summit Lake trailhead and CoPlay Lake

Lots of recreation beyond the closure. The off-roading area will be closed.
Wondering if it is at previous slide areas just past the high trestle bridge..

Given that the road accesses Dept of Ag + Interior, there must be Federal Funds to fix it - the traitor prez says he has made our country so wealthy.

Wondering if bicycles are allowed past barricades?

My guess is if you asked officially you would be told "No."

If you do go and there are crews working at either location, turn around and don't get in their way. If a county official or sheriff/trooper ask you to turn around, do it. Basically follow the #1 rule of living in a society..."Don't be a d**k."

Considering riding it myself later in the spring.
