Trail Update! Here’s the latest on the #RimrockerTrail. The trail IS passable with a few detours. You must take the alternate route of the Delta/Nucla Road, also called 25 Mesa) from Delta to Nucla instead of 90 Road. At this time 90 Road to Divide is impassable due to snow. We are waiting from updated pics from crews that took a bulldozer up there today. The pictures below are from 25 Mesa area to show conditions at a lower elevation. Here are some friendly reminders for early season travel:
If it’s raining in the lower elevations, it could be snowing on top of the plateau. Make good choices.
Be prepared. It’s Colorado. One minute it could be 70 and sunny and the next minute it’s a verifiable blizzard. Again, make good choices.
Pay attention to the high water crossing on U19 near the Ballpark Campground. Last week’s report (shout-out to Justin N) indicated water 10 inches and rising–it’s spring run-off, this will continue for a while. Use the detour if unsure. Yet again, make good choices.
Need a map? Send your address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put one in the mail. If you’re a digital wizard, download GPX, KML and Shapefiles at rimrockertrail.org.
Please be advised that there are portions of the trail that need improved signage. We are working on planning recon missions to fix signs that have been removed or stolen. First, if you want a sticker, send us an email and trip pic at the email above. Second, see above bullet point.
Lastly, if you are heading out on the trail, throw us a bone and send your photos and conditions reports. We are cooped up in offices and unable to hit the trail yet. Good updates will receive sweet new swag!
