Sonora, CA…Seasonal road and trail closures on the Stanislaus National Forest begin Dec. 15 and will remain in effect until April 14, 2017. The Stanislaus National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map indicates which roads and trails will be closed and may be picked up at any ranger district office, or by visiting the Forest’s maps webpage at http://go.usa.gov/x8ysh. Additionally, roads identified in the MVUM as being open may close due to local weather conditions as necessary.
Be advised that Forest roads are not maintained for winter or wet weather use. Use caution and drive defensively when traveling on open roads in the Forest through the winter. Rocks, snow and ice may be encountered in the roadway. Wet, saturated roadbeds are easily damaged, which can require costly repairs to roads and adjacent resources.
Contact your local Ranger District office for current information on roads and conditions before traveling on the Forest.
