Good news 😁: Buckeye Recreation Area is open for camping! 🥳https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/mantilasal/recarea/…
Bad news 😞: The Rimrocker Trail is still impassable 👎 in its entirety. Montrose County Road and Bridge crews are working on plowing over the Uncompahgre Plateau (you won’t believe the snow–pictures coming soon). The Colorado side is likely to open late May. Utah 🤷♂️🤷♀️❄️❄️🗻???
Good news 😍 (we need to end on a good note): There are TONS of great trails to ride in the west end of Montrose County. Check out rimrockertrail.org“Side Trails” in the menu for brochures from the Rimrocker Historical Society listing historic tours with directions.
As always #RimrockerTrail friends, we will keep you updated!
Don’t be fooled by these gorgeous days! Rimrocker Trail is STILL impassable on the CO side and on the UT side. We anticipate it will a minimum of three or four weeks before #RimrockerTrail is passable.
Craig and Katie Johnson attempted the Rimrocker yesterday from Montrose – Moab and were thwarted by snow. Their jeep has 35s, lockers, and they even aired down to 20psi, but the ice below the snow held them back.
3/1/19 Trail Update
We’ve received an epic amount of snow this spring (which we are incredibly grateful for!). It will be quite a while before the trail is open in multiple spots in Colorado and Utah. Check back for updates later this spring! If you’re looking for a nice side route, check out Rte 141 through Gateway Canyon – beautiful scenery!
