Dirt roads and trails in the Eldorado National Forest that are subject to a seasonal closure for wet weather will reopen for public use on Monday.
"We recently reviewed the road and trail conditions and found that they met our criteria for ending the seasonal closure," Kathy Hardy, forest supervisor, said in a written statement. "This time of year, however, some routes may remain wet, and visitors have the responsibility to not damage these roads and trails."
The seasonal closure applies to routes identified on motor vehicle use maps. The maps are free at all Eldorado National Forest offices and on the website at www.fs.usda.gov/eldorado.
Hardy warned that routes not maintained could have hazards such as potholes, rocks on the road and overgrown vegetation that hinders visibility.
