"BREAKING NEWS JUNE 17, The Colorado Trail. 

Until further notice, due to high water danger in the South Fork of the
South Platte River, authorities have closed the road, trail bridge and trail
at the CT Segment 1-2 division. 

Effectively, this closes CT Segments 1 and 2. If you were planning to start
at CT Segment 1, you'll need to revise your plan and START AT CT SEGMENT 3
INSTEAD, Little Scraggy Trailhead. Authorities expect river flows to rise in
coming days/weeks, and they don't yet have a date for reopening.

. Foxton Road 97 is closed where the CT crosses
. CT "Gudy Gaskill" footbridge is closed
. Effective closure of CT Segments 1 and 2
. A CT start near Denver must now begin at CT Seg 3
. Sorry for you, huge change in your CT plans
. CTF contact info is on this FB page under the "About" tab"
