Is the Gray Rock Trail Open?

Postby TCUTED » Mon Aug 20, 2012 1:22 pm

Does anyone know if the trail up Gray Rock has opened up since the Hewlett and High Park fires? There is no information available online, so I figured that someone here might have an idea!

Thanks!

Some Areas Reopened in the High Park Fire Burn Area (including Greyrock & Hewlett Trails): http://ow.ly/d6bIk
Some rise, some fall, some climb to get to terrapin

Greyrock parking lot and trail were closed as of Sunday the 19th when I drove by.

It looks like the map you posted a link to has a date of 8.20.12. That is one day after I drove by it. Perhaps they opened it yesterday. I'm just letting you know that I drove by it on the 17th and the 19th, and it was on lock down both of those days. If you find that it's open, I'd like to know.

I can confirm that it is open. Was there yesterday.

Cool, sorry for the mis-information. Guess I was just a day early.

The parking area for the Palace was all coned off on the 19th, though that could have changed as well.
