SONORA, Calif. — Seasonal road and trail closures on the Stanislaus National Forest begin Dec. 16 and will remain in effect until April 14, 2019.

The STF 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 STF’s maps webpage at http://go.usa.gov/x8ysh. Please note if the MVUM identifies a road as closed, regardless whether a gate is closed and locked, it is closed for the season. Additionally, roads identified in the MVUM as being open may be hazardous due to local weather conditions, such as snow, or fallen trees. Drivers and hikers are urged to be prepared for hazards caused by fallen trees.

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 road conditions before traveling on the forest.

It would be nice if there were a bit more enforcement of these closures. We regularly hear ATVs and off road motorcycles in the National Forest near our cabin, and it's one of the reasons that the roads themselves are a mess most of the year...
