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

So Far as of 9pm. no quakes felt in the Indio area by myself. My cell phone goes off a lot with each new quake, so I am aware of them constantly thou.

Should move the forest closed sign again? They just move it back. Haha.
I have a plethora of giant (3-6 footers) granite boulders I could tractor down, if I had an opening dimension and permission. Hehe, too much work.. and none of my business anyway.

Rocks for sale?
