Wes-Farnham,

How far are these trails from Vail? Melinda and I were invited for up there this coming weekend and I wondered if it would be a good day trip from up there?

Pics taken yesterday, 9/28. The trucked-in rocks start at about 1/10th of mile up from the Shrine Pass Rd and Wearyman's intersection. We stopped at 2/10ths up the trail as the rocks were bouncing us all around and we couldn't get to Camp Hale via this route. Dump truck tracks were seen and it's obvious that the culvert replacement is a big project.

I saw that sign last week also, but was able to get through without issue. Not sure about trucked in rocks. That's what the trail looks like when it's not underwater. photo is about 100 yard up, you can see the leaning tree.

Amazing how different it looks without any water. That big rock to the left was the one that gave the whole line a little trouble a month ago.. actually one of the highlights of the run. Here's an arrow pointing to that rock Jon is looking at above.

Went for a little exploration today. Wearyman's is still open. However Lime Creek now has a Closed to motor vehicles sign ;(

Water in Wearyman's is running boards deep. and there is a few inches on the rest of it.

If someone wants a tour I'm happy to put something together. Mid week afternoons are best for me.

OK, I've got to say this. This has been driving me nuts for years.
Now, before I continue, I will say that I understand the role the forest service plays in protecting the national forests. I'm not trying to be rude or start a bunch of crap here.
Aren't the national forests public land? Are they not there for the enjoyment of the public? We all work hard to keep them clean and protect them in order to preserve them for our future generations. But the forest service's indiscriminate closures of roads and access to these areas is exasperating. How will I be able to take my children, and some day my grandchildren to these places and let them explore and learn responsible use of the land? If these national forests are public lands, then why is the public increasingly barred from using them? It's ludicrous.
I'm just expressing how I feel about this sort of thing.
And how I feel is exasperated, irritated, and I feel as though we (the off road community) are being excluded and discriminated against.
There, that's all I have to say about it.
