Beginning Monday September 20, 2010 and continuing through October 15, certain portions of the unpaved road network within Whiskeytown National Recreation Area will be subject to temporary closures between the hours of 7:00 am to 5:30 pm. These closures are necessary while Park staff improve unpaved roads throughout the Park.

The first closure will occur on Monday September 20,, 2010 on Shasta Bally Road while Whiskeytown National Recreation Area Roads and Trails staff grade and apply gravel to the road surface. This section is expected to be closed through September 24, 2010.

Mill Creek Road is scheduled to close from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm beginning September 27th and continuing through October 6th, 2010. This road will be closed at its junction with Carr Powerhouse road.

The last scheduled section of road maintenance will be South Fork Mountain Road from Hwy 299 West to South Fork Mountain lookout. This section is expected to close from 7:00 am to 5:30 p.m. from October 6th, 2010 through October 15th, 2010.

These closures are temporary and may be changed due to weather or other unscheduled park maintenance projects. Check with the Park Visitor Center by calling (530)-246-1225 for up to date closure information. These closures are necessary to provide for the safety of park visitors and staff during road maintenance activities.

Thank you for your patience while we continue to maintain and improve Whiskeytown’s non-paved roads for visitor access.
