As a result of the recent snowfall, the Backcountry is now closed to wheeled vehicles. Barricades have been put up at the local trailheads, to include Fernan Saddel, Bunco Trailhead and 4th of July Trailhead. The trails are not only open to tracked vehicles. Hayden creek at the intersection of FS Road 206 and FS Road 437 is also closed to wheeled vehicles, however barricades have yet to be placed at that location.
It is also important to know that all the remaining roads in the backcountry are impassable by vehicles. If someone does decide to venture out into the backcountry you should make sure to let someone know where you are going and when you plan to return. Pack plenty of extra food and water and dry clothing. A rescue could take several hours so it is important to be prepared.
