Hello, All -
I've been trying to get more info/options to get past the Miller Fire area. 
I had assumed wrongly that the fire would move to the east and south
Here's what I've got from Mr. Richard Sedillo, USFS.....
Regards and stay safe,
Rich "Bear" Brown

Hey Rich, I haven't been able to get a good updated map of the Miller Fire but I think it is safe to say that it is progressing to the northwest.  Some options include: traveling to the Sapillo Group Campground on Hwy 35 and catch Trail 700 (CDT) or travel Forest Road 150 until you connect to the Rocky Point trailhead the follow the CDT.  Keep in mind that the fire is active and can burn quite a distance in a short period of time.  Another option is to surpass this area and go to the Beaverhead work center on Forest Service road 150, travel east on Hwy 59 until you encounter the CDT shortly after passing Burnt Cabin Flats.  This would take you completely out of harms way.  Remember that there are fire restrictions in place (no camp fires of any type) except in developed campgrounds and that would be liquid gas or propane stoves only.  As we discussed earlier there is not much water out on the trail, be well prepared.  Contact the Wilderness District for more information since this section is their responsibility.  The number is 575 536-2250, the Miller fire is on their district, so you may get a better update as to it's progression..  Good Luck.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
