The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests will close a section of the 47 Trail located on the south end of the Uncompahgre Plateau due to logging operations in the area. Approximately 2 miles of the trail located off the Divide Road (NFS 402) and north to the Lockhart Road (NFSR 507) will be closed while the project continues. This logging operation is part of the GMUG's Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Project to reduce wildfire risk and promote forest health and resiliency across the landscape. Contact the Ouray District Office for updates.
