Sulphur Ranger District to Close Logging Areas in Fraser Valley for Public Safety
November 5, 2008
This month logging contractors working for the U.S. Forest Service will resume activities on the Upper Fraser Valley Forest Health Project.
Work is expected to begin near the headquarters of the Fraser Experimental Forest, with log hauling along the St. Louis Creek Road. With logging trucks and heavy machinery in the Fraser Experimental Forest this fall, to ensure public safety, some roads, trails and areas will be closed.
The Deadhorse Loop Trail and Trailhead will be closed first. Closure information will be updated throughout the fall and winter as logging activity occurs in other locations.
While these logging activities take place, there are many other areas available for recreation including the Idlewild Trail System east of Fraser, the Meadow Creek area east of Tabernash, and the Berthoud Pass area south of the Town of Winter Park.
Information about this project and associated closures, including alternative routes, is available at the Sulphur Ranger District Office, 9 Ten Mile Drive, Granby, or our Web site at http://www.fs.fed.us/r2/arnf/conditions/srdbarkbeetle/logging-fuelreduction.shtml.
