State of Roads & Bridges - PMRP & Miller Fork

by RRGCC » Wed Apr 08, 2015 1:43 pm



We estimate PMRP & Miller Fork road repairs will cost $10,000-$15,000. We will post detailed cost estimates in the coming days. Thankfully most years do not include such extensive flash flooding. Please consider helping with emergency repair at http://rrgcc.org/donate

As of today, conditions on the ground are:

- Bald Rock Road is passable in most all locations by passenger vehicles

- Access to Flat Holler parking lot is not available at this time - please park elsewhere.

- Flat Holler parking lot should be accessible by this next weekend provided weather cooperates. Next week at the latest if it does not.

- Hell Creek Road is in disrepair, and traveling beyond the intersection of Shumaker Ridge Road and Hell Creek by vehicle is NOT advised until further notice – road repairs are contingent on weather.

- We ask that you DO NOT travel back to Sore Heel in anything less than a 4×4 vehicle and DO NOT park along Sore Heel road during this time.

- Parking in front of oil wells, next to oil well access roads, in the road, or anywhere where you might close the travel corridor more than 12’ is strictly prohibited. The oil company MUST have access to repair roads and maintain their equipment. Violators WILL BE TOWED.

- Please use good judgment when parking during this time – do not impede local or company traffic in any way.

- If you cannot find a place to park responsibly, please consider a different crag until we can repair this Spring’s damage.

- All climbing is OPEN and always will be!

We do the best we can to balance mortgage payments and land maintenance, with a limited budget and without charging for access. Repairs will cost more than we had allocated to land maintenance in 2015. Please help us get our roads and bridges back to the condition they were in prior to the floods, and until we do, be ready for some creek crossings when visiting Miller Fork!

Address from the RRGCC concerning the current state of roads and bridges:

"We do the best we can to balance mortgage payments and land maintenance with a limited budget, and all of these repairs are going to cost far more money than we had allocated to land maintenance in 2015. Please help us get our roads and bridges back to the condition they were in prior to the floods, and until we do, be ready for some creek crossings when visiting Miller Fork!"

Some pictures from the PMRP on Friday, 04/03/15 are attached.

Donate or help out on a trail day!!

Forest Road 9B to be Closed Soon

by RRGCC » Wed Mar 11, 2015 12:35 pm



From the US Forest Service - Indian Creek Road 9B will be gated closed to vehicles until sometime in the fall due to a stream restoration project. A temporary gate will be installed at the start of 9B (right after you cross bridge). This gate may be installed as early as this week. Road 9 and 9A will remain open this year. Visitors will not be allowed to drive down 9B but can walk the road using caution to avoid construction zones. Hopefully all work will be completed sometime this fall and the temporary gate removed. At that time, a new gate will be installed 0.9 miles down from the current end of 9B (at the location of former concrete dam).
