South Colony Lakes 4x4 Closing for Good

Hey folks, just letting people know that the rough road to the upper South Colony Lakes Trailhead will close permanently to all vehicles on October 13. In the future, a gate at what is now the "rough 2wd" parking area will be the closest you can get to the S Colony Lakes Valley. Just drove the road all the way for the last weekend is was open, it's a hair raiser!

it's great to hear they are finally closing this road! hopefully the environment will have its chance to recover in the coming decades....but i have my doubts, unfortunately.
