Southwest Loop Road #590G


KALISPELL, MT., January 24, 2017 – Lion Hill Road, Forest Road #5311 and Southwest Loop, Forest Road #590G, located approximately 1 mile south of Martin City on the Hungry Horse/Glacier View Ranger District, will be closed to motorized public use on January 30th.  This includes vehicle and snowmobile traffic.

This road restriction is in place for public safety during timber hauling operations associated with the Trail Creek Salvage Timber Sale.   The road is narrow and plowed to only accommodate one-way log hauling traffic. The duration of this road closure will be weather dependent.

While recreating on the Flathead National Forest, users are advised to use caution on plowed roads, and not to block gates on haul routes.  Additionally, please report any road damage, or road issues of concern to your local forest service office.
