The Willard Peak Road in Box Elder County is closed for the winter. The Box Elder County Commissioners say although the main gate is closed, a side gate will remain open for ATVs and snowmobiles.
Sheriff Lynn Yeates says there was an attempted rescue on Willard Peak Road recently near Inspiration Point and several men were able to walk out. The sheriff says the great danger at this time is the blind curves that are packed in the ice.
Yeates says he will not take his vehicle past Duck’s Flat. The road is scheduled to re-open on May 24, 2013 providing snow levels allow the re-opening.
