Some Forest Roads Still Closed Because Of Damage From Spring Floods

With leaves starting to turn colors, many people are getting out and driving paved and dirt roads into Utah's canyons and forests. Many hunting seasons take place during the fall, and that also motivates people to get into the backcountry.

The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest has issued a reminder that some forest roads are still closed because of damage that occurred during our extra-ordinarily heavy spring flooding. The Mineral Basin Road is temporarily closed while crews replace a culvert that was washed out by runoff. That road is scheduled to be closed through Sunday, October 2, 2011.

Farmington Canyon and Providence Canyon roads probably won't be fixed until next summer.

You may want to contact Forest Service or other land management offices to learn about current road conditions before heading out into the hills.
