The Stage 3 fire and access restrictions to the San Juan National Forest have been rolled back to a Stage 2 condition which means access to the forest is once more open to the public. However, fire conditions still remain high and we are currently in the middle of a strong heat wave. Consult current regulations with the San Juan NF before planning any trips. Fines for violations are significant.
Note: While the San Luis quad shows an elevation of 13,285 ft., on sites estimates have concluded that there is a higher summit on the NE rocky section and that the survey map is missing a contour. LoJ has gone ahead and listed the elevation as 13,300 ft. G&M in the Third Edition still has the elevation as 13,285, hence, a lower ranking. Gerry Roach shows this as PT 13,300 A on his list.
