The Forest Service has closed access for the French Creek, Fancy Creek, Missouri Lake TH‘s d/t flooding - the road is impassable. There is an approx 8 ft wide and 4 ft deep torrent of water running through this.
Right now, with Tigiwon Rd closed for the summer, the only access for Mt of the HC is via the Holy Cross Jeep Rd, which requires a highly modified 4 WD. VERY rough.
To walk up to Hunky Dory TH via the Holy Cross Jeep Rd and on to Mt of the HC measures approx 17 mi r/t.
Call the White River/Holy Cross Forest Service office in Minturn for access updates before heading out.
