I have a mission to TR solo Skinny Love on Spire Rock near the Devils head area of the South Platte. Apparently Rampart Range Road is closed for the next few months of winter which is the best access.

It appears that Jackson Creek Road may be accessed from the East via a road called Hidden Valley Rd. Hidden Valley turns in to FS 503, which meets FS 507, aka Jackson Creek Rd. Does anyone know if road closures will be present via this route? I have a high clearance 4x4.

Thanks in advance,
Sam

It used to have a gate at the bottom that would keep you from getting through but it's been over 10 years from the last time I visited.

Shut down today. Hidden Valley is closed until May 1st. Parking at the gate and hiking isn't an option since there is no legal place to park. And if yah don't know now yah know...
