Status Update
Road to upper TH (cr23 or Nellie Creek Road) was closed for vehicles yesterday and this morning but reopened today afternoon ( we were picked up by a driver who gave us a lift back to 2wd TH) . It was open to hikers - we did Uncompahgre from 2wd TH. There are logs placed across both creek crossings. First crossing, there are 2 logs. Left one is a little unstable. I would try to keep the weight on the (climbers) right log. Some groups turned back at the first water crossing. Second crossing is short, but only has one log across. I have videos of the crossings if anyone wants to see them, feel free to message me.
There is significant washout on the road before you enter the creek (first crossing).
restroom at upper TH is operational.
