The Salmon-Cobalt Ranger District is opening the Moccasin Ridge Road (Forest Service road #60244), effective June 15, 2021, beyond the closed gate through to the end of the road for personal use firewood collection through September 30, 2021.  This area includes an old timber sale area.  Firewood cutting is allowed within the old timber sale units.

This temporary area will be closed sooner is all personal-use firewood is harvested or if weather conditions warrant closure.

A valid, hard copy, personal use fuelwood permit is required, and wood cutters can take up to 12 cords of firewood per household for personal use under the free use permit.  Normal firewood permit restrictions and requirements will apply.  Please do not travel more than 300 feet from any road within the area described in this news release.
