Trail Ridge Rd./US 34 through Rocky Mountain National Park is open to essential travel only. The entire park is closed to recreation due to heavy rain and the severe flooding along the Rocky Mountain Front during the week of Sept. 9, 2013. The town of Estes Park has lost many of its roads and bridges. To avoid the area you will need to use the Berthoud Pass Alternate shown on the map.

Routes / Re: TransAm + Western Express

Please go read the web pages about both of these routes (you'll be using TA #7-#12 between Pueblo, CO and Yorktown, VA). I think you'll find some of your answers in the Overview, Terrain and Logistics tabs.

Tell him to check with the website before he makes a decision as to what to do. They want to get the highway open again as quickly as possible and conditions change daily. There are two ways to get around the road closure, and neither of them are short. One is to come to Missoula, then follow I-90 northwest to Mullan, ID. This will include some frontage road riding and some interstate riding. In Mullan you get onto the Trail of the Couer d'Alenes, a 70+ mile paved rail trail to Plummer, ID. From Plummer, take US 95 south to Lewiston, then to Grangeville where you reconnect to the TransAm. The other is at Lost Trail Pass, go south on US 93 to Challis, ID. At Challis take Hwy. 75 south, then Hwy. 21 west to Lowman. At Lowman, take the Banks Lowman Rd. west to Banks. At Banks, head north on Hwy. 55 to New Meadows where you reconnect with the TransAm.

Idaho has a bicycling map. Here's a link in pdf format: http://itd.idaho.gov/bike_ped/BikeMap2010.pdf

West of Lolo, US 12 is closed due to the Lolo Creek Complex fire between the town of Lolo and Lolo Pass. Here's a link to more information: http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/3683/

The detour around this closure involves many miles. Check with the inciweb website (listed above) before making a decision as to what to do. MT DOT wants to get the highway open again as quickly as possible and conditions change daily. The detour starts in Missoula: follow I-90 northwest to Mullan, ID. This will include some frontage road riding and some interstate riding. In Mullan you get onto the Trail of the Couer d'Alenes, a 70+ mile paved rail trail going west to Plummer, ID. From Plummer, take US 95 south to Lewiston, where you reconnect to the Lewis & Clark Trail.

You should go read the topic "Great Divide, Canada Section - Flooding - June 2013" in the Temporary ACA Route Road Closures. There was major flooding along the route, especially between Banff and Sparwood. We recommended that folks shouldn't ride it this year. A few people have ridden it lately and left photos.

Routes / Re: Southern Tier Route in winter???
« on: July 29, 2013, 01:18:15 pm »
There could be snowy weather especially if storms are rolling through. Normally though the snow won't last, but you might have to sit in a motel for a few days to wait it out. The highest pass on the route in NM stays open all winter and is plowed but there could easily be snow off the road. I suggest you keep checking the weather so you aren't surprised. Also remember that the days are getting shorter so you'll have less hours of daylight to cycle.
