By Moosetrack Megan
Standard Creek Road (Forest road #237) in the Gravelly Mountains west of Lyon’s Bridge will be closed beginning Thur. July 20. The closure will start at the junction with Forest System Trail (NFST) #1200 and travelling west for 2.8 miles.
The road closure will be in effect 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Fridays. The road will be open to public travel Saturdays and Sundays. This closure will remain in effect until logging activities to remove hazardous trees along the roadway have concluded.
Access to the Wolverine Basin trailhead will be limited and visitors are asked to plan accordingly. Travelers in this area are also advised to drive cautiously due to logging truck traffic. Towing of trailers to road barricades is not recommended as turning around may be difficult. For more information contact the Madison Ranger District at (406) 682-4253.
