GDMBR Section 1, Map B, Park Creek fire closure - Aug 2017
« on: August 31, 2017, 04:25:48 pm »
Huckleberry Pass is closed at the forest service boundaries (roughly 5 miles west of pass to 5 miles east of pass). This was mentioned to me by locals, and I confirmed via phone to the Lincoln FS office.

The obvious detour is highway 200 between Ovando and Lincoln.

This closure has apparently been in place since early August so I'm surprised it isn't referenced in this forum yet.

This closure was first mentioned here: https://forums.adventurecycling.org/index.php?topic=14720.0

The Arrastra Creek Fire is now combined with Park Creek Fire, and the InciWeb info can be found here: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5367/

The detour is indeed to ride State Hwy. 200. Some portions of the highway are winding with sharp turns and have minimal shoulders so ride defensively.
