The Forest Service will be replacing a failing culvert located on East Brush Creek Road (NFSR 415.1) at approximately mile marker 3.0. East Brush Creek Road (NSFR 415.1) will be closed to all traffic from MP 2.5 to 4.1 from August 1 to September 1, 2023. The closure will require an alternate route to access the private land of Fulford, other private lands above Fulford, Yeoman and Fulford Campgrounds, the Peter Estin hut, the Polar Star Inn, the Seipel Hut and the surrounding recreational trail accesses in those areas.

Changes to 10th Mountain Division License Plate

The New 10th Mountain Divison License Plates
The 10th Mountain Specialty License Plates are issued by the State of Colorado on behalf of the 10th Mountain Division Foundation, a veterans organization that promotes the history and legacy of the 10th Mountain Division. This program helps further the mission of the Foundation and –to a lesser degree –benefit other 10th Mountain-related causes, including the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association which can typically receive about 20% of the new program’s contributions.

People who currently do not have 10th Mountain plates – and want them – are required to make a minimum $45 contribution to the Foundation. This a one-time fee for each vehicle and is not required for renewals. The State of Colorado charges an additional $50 which goes to the State as it does with all specialty plates, and normal vehicle registration fees still apply.

If you are a current 10th Mountain plate holder or are interested in purchasing 10th Mountain plates, please visit the Foundation’s website for an excellent explanation of the program as well as necessary forms for replacement or purchase of plates
