GD Canada-Map D-south Flathead Alt wildfire closure 8/16/22
« on: August 16, 2022, 07:39:16 pm »
Segments of the GD Canada Flathead Alternate route are closed due to the Weasel Fire. The affected roads are Cabin Rd., Wigwam Rd. and Phillips Rd., and include Cabin and Galton passes, and the famous "Wall" passage above the Wigwam River. Here is the order from BC Wildfire Services: https://blog.gov.bc.ca/bcwildfire/updated-area-restriction-in-effect-for-weasel-creek-wildfire/

Travel through the Flathead Valley along the alternate is still possible following a portion of the Tour Divide race route. Southbound, from near junction of Flathead Rd. & Lower Harvey Rd., cyclists can turn right onto Lodgepole Rd. and intersect the Elk Valley Trail (main route) south of Morrisey at turn I. Or continue south onto the old route along PR 3 to Elko.

Here is that detour: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/40612348
