It is still closed to vehicle traffic. They are still removing trees in the area. I doubt it will be open this year, but not sure of that fact.

Your welcome. I'm in that area all the time.
The road is closed to the public, but the lookout should be staffed on certain days. R and Cammy would know better as the volunteer up there.

The Forest Service has finally reopened 2N13 (Snow Slide Road) between Fawnskin and Green Valley Lake after having the road closed for 7 years since the Butler 2 Fire. Note, however, that the spur road to Butler Peak Lookout (2N13C) is still closed to vehicle traffic. At this time, we don't know if 2N13C will open this year or not.

Here's a map showing 2N13 that's been reopened (highlighted in blue) [Click Here]

Yup. They have opened the first gate, but not the second. There are still dead trees falling close to the tower. Currently the tower is not being staffed. Part of the road is torn up from winter, and it hasn't been graded yet.

I rode 2N13 on my dual-sport motorcycle on Saturday from the Fawnskin area to GVL and it was nice having the road open again though I can confirm that it looks like there is a lot of logging going-on in the area. The road got a bit rougher just past the spur road to Butler Peak, including one small water crossing but all in-all it's not too bad. There is one overlook close to GVL where it's easy to see how much damage the fire did, however it is nice to see how well the underbrush is doing. I also saw many small streams of water crossing the trail which, in the middle of this drought, was nice to see.

I'm hoping that 2N13C gets re-opened sometime this summer.

Kevin

FYI, drift smoke still visible off the El Dorado Fire. It's burning into some green the fire found within the fire's perimeter. Really nowhere to go and will eventually run out of fuel as it burns into itself. No threat to containment, but smoke may continue to puff up at times. [Click Here]

DWJ, I know they were out searching again today. As of 2pm they were still looking as I was monitoring the scanner. Haven't been since then...

Just making sure everyone knows: 42040 Garstin Rd is the Big Bear Public Works yard, and their HAZMAT drop off time is Saturdays from 9-2 weather permitting. The Clean Bear Sites do not accept HAZMAT.

Thanks for all the input from everyone. Yes, I knew we could take household hazardous waste to Garstin on Saturdays. Doohickey, they do take oil, I have taken used oil there in the past with no problems. Actually, I believe the fire department manages that and they just use the Garstin facility as a staging point. EWaste is different than household hazardous waste. I know Garstin takes ewaste, but I thought it was just for BBL residents so thanks Razz for setting me straight on that one. So I guess I can go to either Garstin or the transfer station. So many choices.......
