Forest service closes mountain roads

Logan District Ranger Jennifer Parker says the Millville Peak Road (or Forest Road #20168) and South Fork Road (Forest Road #20023) will be closed to motor vehicles until further notice. Parker says the closure is necessary due to wet and muddy conditions.Parker says the closure begins adjacent to the parking area east of the deer fence and continues to the junction with the Leatham Hollow Trail (Forest Trail #918). Parker says opening the roads too early could damage them as vehicles sink into the roads still saturated with water from snowmelt. The plan, Parker says, is to re-open the roads as soon as conditions permit. Meanwhile, for their own safety, forest visitors are asked to adhere to road closure signage or barricades.
