Status of Mt. Bross

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Sun Feb 28, 2010 1:57 pm

May, 2009: The "loop" route from Kite Lake has been reopened. This includes Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, a bypass just under the summit of Bross and back to Kite Lake. There's a spur off of the loop trail that provides access to Bross' summit, but it's considered closed. If you use it, please keep it to yourself and respect private property. The CFI has done trail work on the loop route and will continue to to do so and install more signage.

Here was the re-opening press release from 2009.

FAIRPLAY, Colo., May 29, 2009: After four years of cooperative efforts, the Mosquito Range Heritage Initiative (MRHI), Colorado Mountain Club, Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, private land owners, Town of Alma and the U.S. Forest Service-South Park District announce a conditional June 1 opening of the "14er" trail from Kite Lake to Mounts Lincoln and Democrat.
Based on trail work completed to-date, private land owners have agreed to a conditional summer 2009 access to Mounts Lincoln and Democrat.
Only the approved access route from the Kite Lake trailhead is open.
The agreement includes continued efforts to educate hikers about potential mountain dangers and the need to respect private property.

"This is a trial opening," emphasizes Cara Doyle, MRHI Executive Director. "Continued future legal access to these two popular Park County peaks will hinge on hikers' respect for private property and willingness to stay on the designated and signed trail. If people do not stay on this designated trail, we could lose this privilege."
Only SNOW will end the madness
