Colorado Land Cruisers will be headed down to the San Juan's Sept 7-11.

No real trail schedule planned, just day trips out and we can do whatever folks want to do

We will be dispersed camping at Golden Horn (down south mineral creek which is just north of Silverton, and should be before the road closer due to last year's fire).

We should have a good group going this year, including meeting some folks from Alabama and the west slope.

Come out and join us!

Due to the Ice Fire damage, this was issued today (9/3/21) and may be of interest to you. I don't think there's any change to your intention and no change to the gate beyond Goldenhorn.



This Order is necessary to protect public health and safety resulting from fire impacts associated
with the Ice wildfire. The order will protect public health and safety as there are numerous fire
weakened trees along the Ice Lakes Trail, to the lower basin, and three quarters of the entire
Clear Lake road. It is expected that trees, rocks, and boulders will continue to fall along the Ice
Lake trail and Clear Lake road well into the winter. The Forest Service intents to let the natural
processes take place throughout the winter. In the spring the Forest Service will send crews into
mitigate hazard and or fallen trees along the Ice Lake trail and Clear Lake road.

PROHIBITIONS:
  1. Going in or being upon NFS land below the Ice Lakes and Clear Lake headwaters and all
    NFS lands bounded on the west by the eastern side of Lower Ice Lakes Basin and a ridge
    forming the south east side of the basin to the Clear Creek. On the north from the top switch
    back of the Clear Lake road (NFSR 815) south to 100 yards south and west of South Mineral
    Creek including South Mineral road (NFSR 585). On the east from the locked gate just past
    the Goldenhorn Campground to where the South Mineral road crosses over Clear Creek, and
    running due north from the locked gate to an unnamed peak directly east of the top switch
    back of the Clear Lake road 36 C.F.R. § 261.58(e)

    T41 N R8 W Sections: 7-9, 16-18
  2. Being upon any portion of the Ice Lakes trail (NFST 505) from the trailhead to timberline in
    the Lower Ice Lake Basin. 36 C.F.R. § 261.58(e)
  3. Being on the Clear Lake road (NFSR 815) between the beginning, mile post 0.0 and the top
    switch back, MP 3.77.
  4. Being on the South Mineral Road (NFSR 585) between the locked gate near the Goldenhorn
    campground MP 2.47 and where South Mineral road crosses Clear Creek MP 4.51. 36
    C.F.R. § 261.58(e)

thanks for that post...looks like Golden Horn is where the road was closed at. So that confirms it. But I would still be planning on camping there.
