    Fire in CS - Bear Creek Canyon - status?

    Looking for some local knowledge on this fire.
    Not getting a lot from the media, and they aren't known for geography. It sounds like this is the next canyon over from the High Drive/Buckhorn Area, from article 'North Cheyenne Road at Seven Falls is closed. Access to Gold Camp Road is limited to those who have a valid ID showing proof of residence.', That area is South of Buckhhorn, my understanding was that Bear Creek was the drainage North of Buckhorn.

    Any help appreciated, Thank you.

    Wait, I think I found it.

    This seems to nail the location down a bit better.

    Depending on track, the trails are probably okay, but I guess i won't be riding up there today...

    You can go up Constellation Ave. to access Gold Camp. Or ride up the Chutes.

    I have been watching the area since this morning, no smoke but I bet you want make friends with USFS if you ride up there today. I bet you could still get to Section 16/palmer trail from the bottom of High Dr.
