Piedra River Closure

The upper section of the Piedra River is closed to any boating or kayaking due to the Little Sand Fire. The Little Sand Fire is a lightning caused fire burning on the north side of the Piedra River from Trail Ridge to Sand Ck. It is currently over 8,000 acres. There is danger of rolling debris such as rocks, trees, and embers along that section of the River.

The lower section of the Piedra River accessed from the end of First Fork Rd is not in the area closure. The emergency closure order was done May 31, 2012. It will be in place for as long as necessary.

You can read the order at San Juan National Forest - News & Events

Fire updates can be found at San Juan National Forest - Home under the recent news header.
