I called the Forest Service earlier today and they said it may open this weekend. The lady on the phone wouldn't get a definite answer and told me to call again on Friday. The number to call for a status update on Long Draw road is: 970-295-6600.

To check the road status report online, go here:
USDA Forest Service, Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forests, Pawnee National Grassland - Current Conditions- Canyon Lakes Ranger District Road Status

A few of us ran from the headwaters down this weekend and the level was perfect. Since the weekend it's droped quite a bit, from 6 (High) on Saturday to 4.5 (Medium-High) today. Hopefully they'll open that damn gate before the creek dries up...

I just talked to the FS. They are trying to get it open, but aren't sure if it is going to happen. They said they'll know by 4-4:30. I'm going to call back at that time and I'll post if there is any news.

Just thought I'd update y'all so the FS doesn't get 500 calls today...

OH YEAH... Let the stoke begin.

One of the best runs in the US.

Only bummer for me is that I out of town for a week... SAVE SOME OF THE WATER!
