Steamboat - Big Red Fire

Recommended Posts

Heads up if you are headed up Steamboat direction for some riding north of town.

The Big Red fire started recently and a week or so ago was less than 10 acres. Now, per inciweb, its 529 acres and is burning in alot of beetle kill, so, at least a while back, the FS was planning to let it burn....at least as long as structures weren't threatened.

As the crow flies, it appears to be a little over 2 miles from the eastern end of Nipple Peak trail and Trailrydr9 said they are considering closing Big Red Park.

Glad we were able to get in a lap on Nipple Peak/Prospector a few weeks back with Trailrydr9 and a friend.

Up to 710ac.  The area is closed most likely until next year when @redhurricane and other volunteers (including myself) will be able to clean out the trails again.  By the way, stay outa there with them drones!!!  They had a problem with a drone pilot flying around trying to take some video, and they had to halt all operations, including helicopters which were dumping fire suppressant.  I say open drone season on anyone who is causing more delays to our trails!
