Forest Service reopens some Manti-LaSal roads


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

A number of gates on Forest Service roads and trails are scheduled to be opened April 15. In some cases, they are the first gates in a series of gates along the roads and trails. Travelers may encounter snow drifts or wet areas as they near the second gates along a road. Forest Ranger Darren Olsen urged people to use caution and respect as they travel and not attempt to travel saturated roads.

Churning deep tracks through the mud causes severe damage to roads that doesn't go away when they dry out. Later erosion often makes the damage worse and contributes sediment to the watershed.

The following roads on the Ferron Price District will open at the first gate:

Ferron Canyon #50022: Gate opened on dugway below Ferron Canyon Overlook

Horn Mountain #50019: Gate opened at junction with #50170 (South Joes Valley)

Seasonal closures for OHV trails such as the Hole, Black Dragon, Lord's and Rock Canyon trails, and motorcycle trails such as Dry Wash, Middle, and Rim trails will also be lifted April 15.

These closures and openings are identified on the Motor Vehicle Use Map for the Ferron-Price and Sanpete Districts and are in effect each year between Dec. 1 and April 15. Those wishing to travel near the area should obtain a Motor Vehicle Use Map from either the Forest Supervisor's Office in Price or the Ferron/Price District Office in Ferron. The map can also be obtained from the Forest website: http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/mantilasal/maps-pubs
