The Colt Fire is burning about 15 miles northwest of Seeley Lake, MT, on the west side of SR 83. As of July 28, FR 4370, FR 4353, FR 667 and FR 720 are temporarily closed. These roads are located on the route south of Holland Lake Rd. and near Richmond Peak. The only way around these closures is to ride on SR 83. Fire behavior can be unpredictable, so SR 83 may be closed depending on when you're in the area. To continue your journey, it might be best to hitch hike a ride in a pickup truck to get through the area quickly.

Update 8/7/2023: The Colt Fire closure areas remain on the west side of SR 83 and so currently there are NO route closures impacting Great Divide Section 1. The temporary road closures for FR 4353, 4370, 667 and 720 have been lifted. This information is susceptible to change.
