All.

 Had a permit to hike a lollipop hike in RMNP: Tonahutua Inlet Trail with a side trip to Long's Peak.  I've heard they are re-scheduling hikes because of fire related trail closures.  Anyone know any details?  Have the fires affected the Never Summer Wilderness Area?

I'm not seeing anything of "active" concern for the Arapaho or Roosevelt National Forests. IS this trail work? Here is Colorado's inciweb info:

Actually, a lot of counties in the high country are dropping their fire restrictions.  They've been getting a fair amount of rain up there lately.

Double Cabin,

 Thanks for the web site.  The RMNP fire is listed as active (Big Meadow).

 I do not see anything for the Never Summer Wilderness Area which might turn into our option this late in the season.  I got the permits the first day they were giving them out.  I'm thinking the options will be limited in RMNP as they try and re-route other groups.

That fire hasn't been updated in over a month. Must be slow burnout operations or something.

I believe I read somewhere that they were going to discontinue updates on one or more of those sites.

I know this one, though updated is notoriously slow in posting info.

Talked to one of the rangers today.  He put together a new itinerary which is actually pretty good.  I might still hike in NSWA after that trip.  Thank you both for the very helpful information.
