Woodrat Mountain open Print E-mail

Dept. of Lands opens access gates

     On April 20, the Maggie Creek Supervisory Area of the Idaho Department of Lands in Kamiah opened the gates accessing the Woodrat Mountain block of state land to public use, ahead of the scheduled Memorial Day weekend opening. Due to high tree harvest levels it was necessary to open the gates early to facilitate harvest and hauling.

     Entrance roads are open at Suttler Creek Road, Wilson Creek Road, Harris Ridge Road, 4th of July Loop Road, Maggie Creek Road, Glenwood Meadows Road, and Smith Creek Road (at Woodrat Mountain).

     IDL asks that the public exercise extreme caution using state land on the Woodrat block. Expect delays and heavy log truck traffic. CB radios are highly recommended for travel. CB channels are generally posted at the beginning of haul routes.

     Normal road closures in the area will resume after the general elk hunting season in early November.

Elk wash - On April 20, this small herd of elk arrived at this pond near Harpster and had fun playing in the water.  They danced on two feet and boxed and splashed each other.  They hung around the house for several hours. Did the horse join in the fun? That would be a neigh. Photo by Dixie Lynn, near Harpster
