Trails reopened in Flat Tops

The East Williams Fork Basin in the Flat Tops Wilderness, closed to the public since July 14 because of the Lost Lakes Fire, was reopened Friday, according to U.S. Forest Service spokesman Vinnie Picard.

“Now that the fire danger has passed, we have reassessed the dangers in the area and decided to lift the closure order,” said White River National Forest supervisor Martha Ketelle.

Trails reopened under Ketelle’s order are: East Williams Fork Trail No. 1119, Baldy Mountain Trail No. 1200, Black Mountain Trail No. 1117, West Fork Trail No. 1116, Transfer Trail No. 1173, Picket Pin Trail No. 1811, and Ripple Creek Trail No. 1803.
