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: See also Lavender Peak. G&M rank Moss as #492. Since LoJ & Roach have decided that Lavender is missing a contour line thus making it higher by extrapolation they have given it a rank and demoted Moss to "soft rank" status. Might as well just climb both if you're there. Moss is an easy stroll from Lavender.
