Trail washed out

Heading out for a ride down south? El Paso County Parks has posted this alternate route on the Fountain Creek Regional Trail.

I don't see an alternate route just the map showing the washout.

The two low water crossings on the Greenway are both under water too.

Hmmm, I see your point. Looks like the parks folks are saying "take an alternate route," but not suggesting one.

Anyone been down here in recent days? What's it look like? An easy ride-around or no point in heading south-north unless you're ready to turnaround at the washout?

It has been washed out since last Summer. You used to be able to go down into the creek bed to go around it but that route is impossible now that the creek is running so high. Also, the low water crossing just South of Nevada Avenue is likely flooded over right now.

A county employee told me they have plans to build a low water crossing a bit West of the washout since it has been repaired twice already.

Thanks for the update. I was just outside and it was lovely riding/hiking weather. If anyone's out today, throw us a trail update.
