Great Divide Sec01-Missoula Spur-Trail Closures 8/1/19
« on: August 01, 2019, 12:29:02 pm »
The main Rattlesnake Trail, East Fork Rattlesnake Trail #514, and Sheep Mountain Trail #513 in Lolo NF are all closed due to the Beeskove Fire which is burning in steep terrain directly above the route near SB mile 54.3, about 1.7 mi. S of Franklin Bridge. Here is info about the fire: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/6458/

The SB detour is to leave the route at turn M (mi 39.3), and follow Gold Creek Rd./FR 126 3.5 mi. S to SR 200, and then follow SR 200 16.3 mi. W into Missoula. Here is a map of said detour: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30723212. Just reverse for NB.

Update to Beeskove Fire closures on GD Missoula Spur: the main Rattlesnake Trail, East Fork Rattlesnake Tr. #514 and Sheep Mtn. Tr. #513 all reopened on 8/17. However, East Fork Rattlesnake Road/FR 2112 and Mineral Peak Lookout Road/FR 2120 are now closed until further notice as firefighting efforts continue. The above detour is still necessary to avoid the closed roads.
