Area Closure in Place Due to Flooding on The Ogden Ranger District
Sean Harwood, Ogden District Ranger of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forests, announced February 24 a temporary closure for the Pineview West trail (Forest Service trail #612) and surrounding area due to flooding. Heavy rainfall and melting snowpack have created unsafe conditions.
The closure encompasses Forest Service road #258, including North Arm trailhead, south along Pineview West trail (Forest Service trail #612), to Forest Service road #233, directly north of the Yacht Club. The closure includes all bathroom facilities along the trail and National Forest System lands adjacent to State Route 158 on the west side of Pineview West trail.
Any use of the area is hazardous and the public is urged to avoid all flooded areas. The closure will remain in place until the spring runoff subsides and damaged areas can be assessed and repaired.
