No good no bueno. The bridge at the Willis Gulch TH is out. There is a replacement bridge sitting there but it will not be installed until October per the FS. Alternate ways to cross the creek are as follows:
1) About 1/6 mile west on CO 82, there are two pull offs that will accommodate a handful of vehicles. There is a Gaging Station here and a foot bridge that will take you across.
2) About 1/2 mile west on CO 82, there is access from the Parry campground. The FS advises you to contact the host at the campground because parking is limited. There might be a $5 day use fee as well.
