Gates Closures for the Weekend of March 1-2

All regular gates opened for public use will be closed this weekend.  This closure has been put in place to minimize safety risks with public use of snow- and ice-covered roads.

Access to areas without gates, or unlocked gates, is highly discouraged due to road conditions.  A high hazard notice is in place.

No public firewood cutting opportunities will be made available for this weekend.
