For anyone planning on visiting Hinsdale County/Lake City area, be aware of the following road closures. Visit this link for more details. Click Here For the San Juan National Forest click here to be taken to a page on their site that has road closure information. Currently there is no off-road/primitive site camping allowed along the South Mineral Creek FS585 out of SIlverton. Do your research before leaving. Many areas commonly accessible by this time of year are still closed! Check other National Forest websites for additional information.
Note: G&M did not consider Lavender Peak to be a "ranked" summit. Neighboring Mount Moss was ranked. Later measurements adopted by LoJ and Roach now consider the La Plata quad to be missing a contour line for Lavender which in their opinion elevates Lavender to a "ranked" position while Moss is demoted to "soft rank."
