Please respect these and all signed closures. They are in place for public safety and to allow for rehabilitation efforts. Note that in some closed areas, residents are receiving credentials from the county to allow them to return. Flood information is available online at www.fs.usda.gov/goto/arp/flood2013. Be sure to check county road closures, as those could impact access to National Forest System lands.

Although some areas have re-opened, conditions remain wet and additional rain or snow could also impact conditions of currently opened areas. Remember, your safety is your responsibility. If you encounter an unsafe situation on a road or trail that is open, please stop and turn around. Emergency response access is limited. Be prepared with emergency supplies.
