The North Zone of the Salmon-Challis National forest will be implementing several seasonal road system closures over the upcoming weeks and months.  These closures are part of the Salmon-Challis National Forest Travel Plan and can be found on the Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUMs).  Implementation dates for various roads are September 8th, October 1st, and November 16th of each year.

Seasonal route closures are designed for wildlife security and reproductive habitat, to provide for increased opportunities for hunting away from motorized access, to enhance non-vehicle recreational experiences, to protect roads from vehicle damage during periods of the year when they are more easily damaged, and to increase public safety during periods of the year when some roads are more dangerous to drive on due to weather and road conditions.

The following North Zone road systems will be Seasonally Closed in the Fall of 2019:  Gates will be closed the first business day thereafter when the date falls on a weekend or Federal holiday.
