Hewlett Gulch, Greyrock trails both closed

Due to increased fire activity in the area of the Hewlett Fire north of the Poudre Canyon, the Greyrock Trail has reclosed and the Hewlett Gulch Trail remains closed. The fire has not grown outside the contained perimeter of 7,685 acres, according to the U.S. Forest Service.

The increased fire activity is relatively close to the Greyrock Trail. The trail was previously reopened to the public on June 1, when the Hewlett Gulch Trail reclosed. The trails will reopen when the Forest Service considers conditions safe for the public.

The Forest Service also reminds visitors that there is still smoke in the area of the Hewlett Fire, which began on May 14. Smoke could be visible from within the interior of the fire for weeks to come as unburned pockets of fuel continue to ignite and smolder.

For additional recreation information on the Canyon Lakes Ranger District, please contact visitor information services at 970-295-6700. The office at 2150 Centre Ave., Building E, in Fort Collins is staffed Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the summer.
