The closure at the Placer Flats Takeout on Clear Creek, at Mile Marker 260.5, has been lifted and the area is now open to all users. The one-day closure was necessary to enlarge the eddy, slow the water and create a safer takeout.
The temporary takeout, under the bridge at US Highway 6 and Highway 119 intersection, will no longer be open. All rafters and kayakers are required to takeout at Placer Flats, as the river downstream to Mayhem Gulch/Mile 262.25 is closed for construction of the Peaks to Plains Trail. Please refer to the map below for more details
The Project Team would like to thank the rafting community for their cooperation during yesterday’s closure as well as the during the construction of the Peaks to Plains Trail.
