[Cdt-l] Zirkel Area Closure
mail at cdtsociety.org
Wed Jul 14 19:46:38 CDT 2010
Voyageur's July 10 entry on Postholer reports that part of the CDT in
northern Colorado has been closed because of beetle hazards. The
official route that descends from the Divide past North Lake to the
North Lake Trailhead is closed. (This is Northern Colorado Supplement
Zirkel Sec. 2, 9.6-3.3.) NOBO, you would remain on the Divide on
Wyoming Trail 1101 past the junction with Three Island Lake Trail 1163
to Gold Lake Trail 1164, then descend west past Slavonia to Seedhouse.
(This is Northern Colorado guidebook Zirkel Sec.3:2.7 to Zirkel Sec.
2:0.2.) SOBO, you would take the road east to Slavonia, go up Gold
Creek, then south along the Divide.
The temporary relocation is a very nice route. Note, however, that
camping restrictions are in effect in the immediate vicinity of Gold Lake.
Thanks, Voyageur, for the heads-up.
