Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park closed yesterday afternoon and will remain closed today at Rainbow Curve on the east side and Colorado River Trailhead on the west side because of critical fire weather conditions, strong winds and active fire behavior. Due to a winter storm forecast beginning late tonight through Wednesday afternoon, it is unknown when Trail Ridge Road will reopen. This closure includes access to vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians.
The Cameron Peak Fire moved south into the remote northern part of Rocky Mountain National Park late Saturday.
Old Fall River Road closed late Saturday night in Rocky Mountain National Park. Old Fall River Road will be closed until further notice.
Additional trail closures implemented yesterday include The Chapin Pass Trail off of Old Fall River Road, The North Fork Trail, The North Boundary Trail, and The Stormy Peaks Trail in the northeast area of the park and sixteen additional wilderness campsites in these areas.
Because Red Flag Warnings are in place through Monday, changing conditions could bring additional closures.
