See below for this year's Gore Canyon Race closure map from the BLM. If you have any trouble viewing the map, it is also available for viewing here:
Note that the railroad track is 100% off-limits to anyone, and closure will be strictly enforced. All foot traffic will need to follow the black dotted line that follows the river, shown on the detailed map below. The red dotted line shows the closure areas. The 'foot trail' is kind of precarious from what I can tell, consisting of loose boulders and a river crossing. Good footware and good balance is probably a good idea here. Dogs may have a hard time past Kirschbaum rapid.
Please address all questions/concerns about the closure to the following persons, and post here to keep everyone up to date:
P.S. BLM is sending a press release shortly. I will post this as soon as I get it.
