Update: September 5, 2017
We have heard from the Bitterroot Forest Service and the Sheriff that they lifted the closure of the Magruder Corridor. It is suggested that you still check with the Elk City Ranger station before traveling to make sure the fire has not closed the road again.
Update: September 1, 2017
The Nelson Creek fire in Montana has the Magruder Corridor closed just 4 miles shy of reaching pavement in Montana. You will be turned around if you go from Elk City to this point. It is 98 miles to that point, so we suggest you check with the Elk City Ranger station in Elk City before you travel that direction. We are waiting to hear from the Bitterroot National Forest Service on the status of opening the road back up.
