IDBDR: Long Creek Rd temporary bypass suggested

Aug 21st, 2018


The Lowman District Ranger has asked that we ask riders to not use Long Creek due to new water bars recently installed. The waterbars are very wide and deep and were installed to help with possible flooding from recent fires.  They will come up unexpectedly and have not been packed in yet for travel.  It will help the Forest Service get the road in good shape for next year if we would stay off the road until next season.  Also the water crossing at Clear Creek is still deep and several bikes have been stranded there this summer.  Please take Clear Creek road up to where the route turns and goes north on Bear Vally Rd.  Click here for gpx track of bypass
