While this work is occurring, forest visitors should expect delays up to 30 minutes. No camping is allowed within those work areas.
Hazardous tree removal means heavy machinery and logging trucks are on and along the road. Some of the equipment used can throw chunks of wood and rocks up to 500 feet, posing a threat to those in the area. Use extra caution and avoid this equipment. Obey all signs posted in the area.
Information on the status of roads is available on the Canyon Lakes Roads Status website at www.fs.usda.gov/goto/arp/roads. For other recreation information on the Canyon Lakes Ranger District, please call the Visitor Information Center at 970-295-6700 or follow the district on Twitter @usfsclrd.
It is also important for folks to make safety your top priority when heading into the forest. Remember your safety is your responsibility. Live and dead trees can fall without warning, especially with the abundance of saturated soil throughout the forest. Be sure to know weather conditions before heading out.
