I could have the wrong road because it was 10:30 @ night. But we were at the forest service road "West Fork of the San Juan" on the North side of 160 about 15 miles N.E. of Pagosa towards Wolf Creek, right before the big water fall bull off on the south side. Perhaps there are other roads to get up to the West Fork run, but the forest Service road we tried definately had a closed gate right off hwy 160 last Saturday night. We ended up camping @ the Piedra which is 40 miles west of there, so i'm quite sure there is no confustion between the two. Having never done the run, I'm also not sure this is the correct road to get to it.
Steve, I think this is the link you were looking for. It's dated april 13 so it might not be current. Looks like most roads are closed, including "west fork" which i'm assuming is the one we want for the WFSJ?
You still thinking escalante this w/e or is it gonna be too low?
If the official name of that road in West Fork #648
Then no it is not yet open
I was forwarded a spreadsheet of open roads dated today but they are listed by the FS name or number and I dont know that one
