GDMBR Section 4 map C 2020 fire closure
« on: August 17, 2020, 02:03:20 pm »
The route is closed between Williams Fork Reservoir and Ute Pass due to fire.  It is very smokey in the area.  You can use Hwy 9, it is busy but mostly a good shoulder.  There is a county road to the west of Green Mtn Reservoir that can provide a 8 mile respite from the Hwy.  Also there are campgrounds at Green Mtn.

More info on the Williams Fork Fire can be found here: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/6971/

As of 8/18, it is closing GD Sec04 main route from near the Horseshoe CG (SB mi. 92.1) south to East Branch Reservoir (SB mi. 96.4) on the north side of Ute Pass. The detour is at turn J, SB mi. 66.4, continue straight on SR 9. As Patbikes noted, CR 30 provides a respite from the highway around Green Mountain Reservoir. South of the reservoir, SR 9 will be rejoined into Silverthorne. Attached is a map for reference. And here is a RWGPS map of the detour: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/33822847
