Closure of Trail Creek Road

This is a new closure order from Rob Davies, District Ranger of the Forest Service, via Allen Chrisman on the Kootenai, as a result of the Gibraltar Ridge Fire in the Eureka area.

This closure effects travel from the North Fork over Trail Creek onto the Kootenai.  We will be posting signs today at the North Fork (junction of North Fork Road and Trail Creek Road), and at Tuchuck Trail Head.

This also affects the Pacific Northwest Trail.  We will post the order at strategic trailheads for the PNW in coordination with the Kootenai.
