    Wow... I was afraid of that.

    How do they even build a road there now?

    With lots of big rocks. Vermont got rocked two years ago by the hurricane, and they have built the roads back better than ever. Of course during that time, traffic pretty much sucked and there were months when you couldn't get from one town to the next. Of course it's pretty easy to find the budget to rebuild a federal highway, but there are going to be roads in Colorado that might be closed for a long time before they are re-opened...

    It won't be cheap and it won't be a priority, but it will happen at some point.

    Geer Canyon Road

    That does not look good. Considering the trailhead is right next to the creek I would say there is a good chance that the trailhead is gone as well.

    Sad.

    Yo can do anything with enough money and time. I'd guess with all the needs right now, resources are going to be strained to the max just getting major highways repaired/rebuilt in the next year or two. Things like trails for Mtn bikers and hikers to have fun on might not be the highest priority.
