The Forest Service has confirmed that Lightning Creek Road from Clark Fork to Trestle Creek Road will be closed until next summer.
There has been a massive wash out due to recent rains and the Forest Service will not receive any funds until next year to repair the road.
To reconnect with the route from Clark Fork, remain on Hwy 200 to the junction of Trestle Creek Rd and Hwy 200 where you will remain on Hwy 200 to continue the route as planned. This is IDBDR track name: Sec 08 Clark Fork to Canada.
