Apr 4, 2017 - Sparks, Nev. – In an effort to prevent damage to its unpaved roads, the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest urges the public to refrain from driving on wet, muddy roads.

“We know that after a long winter people are eager to get out into the Forest,” said Bill Dunkelberger, Forest Supervisor. “Travel with caution, and understand that many higher elevation roads are still closed due to snow. Lower elevation roads that are open are likely to be wet and muddy, making driving conditions extremely difficult.”

To ensure motor vehicle safety, protect vital access routes, and care for the land, Forest officials are asking visitors to use common sense while driving on Forest roads. Driving on soft, muddy, unsurfaced roads can easily cause deep wheel ruts, resulting in road damage and soil erosion.

Proper and responsible use of vehicles on Forest roads is important to ensure roads remain in good shape for all visitors. Causing damage to roads and other Forest resources can be a violation of federal regulations, which could carry a fine up to $5,000 and/or six months in jail.

Forest users should also use defensive driving techniques while on Forest roads. This includes adjusting vehicle speed to current weather and road conditions, and staying alert for unexpected hazards, including other vehicles, livestock, as well as rocks, fallen trees and road washouts.

For more information about road conditions or to report resource damage, please contact the following Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest offices.
