I rode my bike up there last fall but was getting a little tired and cold by the time I got up to needles eye. I was going to walk up to it but then it looked like it was too far. That would be cool to connect it over to WP, as long as the mud bogs don't get worse there next to Yankee Doodle Lake.

I saw it too. Here's the website:

Colorado Association of 4WD Clubs

Unfortunately I don't think the story's on the web site yet.

Default cool...

I always loved the west side of the pass and the hiking and the trestles you get to walk across. Let me know when you find the info or they post on the website, I would love to know when it will happen!

I rode my motorcycle through it the DAY before it collapsed on the Denver firefighter and was closed. eeek! As far as it reopening, I heard that too but have nothing substantive on it. So Red Chili has no clue.

The bad news would be, that makes reopening the Boulder Wagon Road less likely. Too bad. But the return of a connecting route, coupled with Jenny Creek Road, and the new BLM 4x4 road by Winter Park, makes a dandy day trip.
