Some portions of Roosevelt National Forest in northern Larimer County to open Sunday
Based on the incoming weather forecast and conditions, the Front Range fire restrictions team has decided to begin phasing some more areas back to Stage 2 fire restrictions. The team, which includes five county sheriffs, Colorado Parks and Wildlife regional managers, fire managers and Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest Supervisor Monte Williams, has decided some areas north of Colo. Highway 14 in Canyon Lakes will return to Stage 2 fire restrictions Sunday morning, with a closure around the Cameron Peak fire area. Arapaho National Forest’s Sulphur Ranger District already moved to Stage 2 Fire Restrictions starting Friday morning with forest closures around the East Troublesome and Williams Fork fire areas.
South of Hwy 14, in the Canyon Lakes, Boulder and Clear Creek Ranger Districts, Stage 3 forest closures will remain in place through at least first thing Tuesday morning. The fire restrictions team will meet Monday morning consider the impact of the weekend’s weather and determine if less restrictive Fire Restrictions are warranted. At the same time, the team will work to bring in another surge of law enforcement to help patrol the forest and enforce fire restrictions.
As of Sunday, areas on the Canyon Lakes District located generally north of the Tunnel Campground and CR 80C; west of CR 103; east of the west side of the largest unit of the Cherokee Park Wildlife Area and north of CR 74E and Highway 14 from east of the Narrows Campground. Areas open include the northern portion of the Rawah Wilderness, the Roach Area and trails north of Highway 14 in the lower Poudre Canyon.
All land south of Highway 14 remains closed. All campgrounds also remain closed.
