The US Forest Service, Salida Ranger District will re-open the North Fork road (FSR 240) on Wednesday, October 3, 2012. The road was closed in late July to allow logging contractors to remove timber that had blown down as a result of extremely high winds that occurred over the previous winter. The road and surrounding area was closed to protect public safety during active logging and hauling operations. A temporary gate was installed during the closure to ensure that people and vehicles remained out of the area. The gate will be removed. 

“We certainly appreciate the public’s patience during this emergency salvage timber sale. “I know there are many anglers, hunters and visitors who are anxious to enjoy the North Fork drainage again.” said district ranger Bill Schuckert.
