|Comments on Flatirons Trail Closure – Connector from NCAR to Mesa Trail||Add Comment|
Sep 27, 2012
The NCAR trail closure that has been in place since August 27 has been extended through October 12 to allow wildfire risk mitigation forestry work to be completed.
The closure continues for the trail connector on the NCAR property that provides access to the Mesa Trail and Mallory Cave. It remains in effect from 7:00 am on Monday morning until 4:30 pm on Friday afternoon each week. The trail is open on weekends.
The forest crew is wrapping up work in steep and challenging terrain, and this closure is a safety measure to reduce risk to the public and forestry workers while tree thinning takes place.
The Walter Orr Roberts Weather Trail remains open. Hikers are advised to choose alternate routes to access city of Boulder Open Space and the Mesa Trail on weekdays during the closure.
Dates of closure are subject to change due to weather. Check www.ucar.edu/forest for updates and more information on NCAR’s wildfire risk mitigation project.
