Sevenmile Road (Forest Road 225), located north of Rustic, is temporarily closed due to extremely wet conditions according to Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland division of the Forest Service. The closure is necessary to maintain the integrity of the work done to repair this road following the September 2013 Flood. The road will remain closed until the road base has a chance to dry.
With all the rain and snow the area has been receiving, it is a good time to remind visitors to remain on roads and trails even in the mud to avoid making new routes and damaging the surrounding environment. Be prepared for a variety of conditions before heading out this weekend.
