EUREKA, California, July 14, 2017 – Due to extensive damage caused by this winter’s storms, acting Six Rivers Forest Supervisor Michael Green has issued an emergency closure order for Forest Service Road (FSR) 17N05.

Located on the Gasquet Ranger District/Smith River National Recreation Area, FSR 17N05, also known as Jawbone Road, is a popular route to the Bear Basin Butte area, and Devils Punchbowl, Doe Flat Trailhead, Island Lake and Gun Barrel trails.

The closure has the road barricaded approximately eight miles south of the junction of Highway 199, and then one mile south just before the junction with FSR 16N02.

The Bear Basin Butte area and Doe Flat Trailhead may be accessed by FSR 16N02; however, only high-clearance, 4x4 vehicles are advised. To access the area via FSR 16N02, take the South Fork Road (County Road 427) from the junction with Highway 199 to Big Flat and the junction of FSR 16N02.

The 17N05 road is just one of many roads on the forest that were damaged over the winter. Many areas remain inaccessible due to hazards that make them unsafe for anyone, including employees, to enter. Road hazards include downed trees, debris from mudslides, outer road prism failure and undercutting of the road.

Anyone planning to travel on forest roads should first contact the Gasquet Ranger Station at (707) 457-3131 or visit www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/srnf/alerts-notices.
