    Looking at the MVUM, the three gulches appear to be county roads now, not FS, at least from the designator on the map. Red is Metberry, 205, it looks like it goes to the river which is basically the county line at that point. Blue would be Longwater, 221, it shows ending at the county line, though this one is on a section boundary instead of the river. Hackett, 220, shown in yellow looks to fork a bit right at the end, but it also ends at the county line on a boundary for the section south of Longwater.

    Getaklu previously posted:
    "It seems the debate on these is is whether or not Park county considers them open while Teller county does. Many say to turn around at 3.8 miles in for Longwater as that is the county line. Doing so, one would miss 0.8 miles of the trail. None of the water crossings are officially open from what I understand. Predator 4x4 works with the forest service and sponsors those trails and would be one of the best resources in regards to answers."

    Called them, Longwater is closed at the county line which means you can't go to the river, I think that is mile 3.8 as Getaklu said. That is why the other guy got a ticket, he was on the other county side where it is closed. Predator said they had a sign posted, but that some were taking a bypass an not seeing the sign. Metberry is open all the way to the river. He did mention to me that if you don't have lockers to stay out of Hacket, but the others were fine for stock Jeeps as you have all told me.

    This weather outside doesn't seem very conducive to jumping in rivers.

    Depending on the weather station you look at, we've got a 50% chance of precip.

    You guys want to put this off until tomorrow?
