FR552 to Lockett Meadow closed until spring 2019

Post by chumley » Oct 19 2018 3:02 pm

As a result of people who probably shouldn't venture outside, the FS has closed Forest Road 552 (access to Lockett Meadow) for the season. It will open in spring 2019 when seasonal winter closures expire.

There's some steep drops on that road up. :o

True, but that wouldn't stop some people from sending text messages while driving up the road
