And if there is a stage 3 ban in place, can peaks sitting on private property be hiked? I think I read that Sherman is owned by a mining company, and some of the DeCaLiBron peaks are privately owned as well. Would these peaks still be closed? I'm sure there are other examples of this as well (i.e. Culebra).
Yes, the bans can go by county or the governor can enact a statewide ban. Private property can still be accessed during a stage 3 ban but of course you would need permission. Opportunities to stay completely on private property and hiking 14ers are few and far between, Culebra would work though. I image it will be pretty darn busy this summer if we go to a stage 3 ban statewide.
