Lower Poudre Canyon Closed

The Forest service closed the Poudre down between the Narrows and Filter Plant - Apperas to includes river access from the Upper Canyon and the North Fork.

My interpretation of the USFS order is that FS roads are closed, but they don't have authority over roads that aren't on FS lands. The highway (CO 14) falls under jurisdiction of the State.

Having said that, Hwy 14 was completely washed out just above the mouth of the canyon, and I'm sure there were many mud slides/washouts between the mouth and the narrows. So the state DOT / Highway patrol will likely keep the highway closed for some time - see Road Conditions, Speeds, Travel Times, Traffic Cameras, Live Streaming Traffic Cameras, Road Closures and Road Work Information provided by Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) a branch of Colorado Department of Transportation for state roads.

Bottom line: USFS has closed all FS roads, and I suspect (but don't know) that this includes roads in Red Feathers, etcl. The state has the highway closed, and I didn't check the county, but I bet they've also closed roads under their jurisdiction.
