Logging Traffic Alert in the North Fork of the Big Hole

Contact(s): Leona Rodreick

 Logging operations and log truck traffic will begin this week and run weekdays through September 30 in the Pintler Creek drainage and along Forest Roads #185 and #1278.  Recreationists seeking to access the Anaconda-Pintler wilderness via the trailhead above Pintler Lake or via the Mystic Lake portal are urged to watch for truck traffic on the lower North Fork road, and along Highway 43 on the Wisdom Ranger District.  

     If you are travelling in that area during the work week, expect to encounter minor delays due to logging operations, as roadside hazard trees are being removed to enhance public safety.

     Contact the Wisdom Ranger District at 689-3243 for traffic updates and drive safely and defensively on all Forest roads this summer.
