Hi all,

Anyone know if the road to the Butler Peak fire lookout has re-opened? Thanks!

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

Razz I got an email Spectrum is doing some cable service tonight, but it should be after midnight. Maybe that's why they're fixing it....

Yes this weekend wasn't that crazy at all for a change. Busy enough for all of the businesses to make some good money hopefully but not too busy to drive the locals crazy. The snow was amazing at both Summit and Bear. It got slightly wet yesterday at Bear but perfectly rideable

Just came down the hill via running Springs Highway 330 and not too many cars traffic moving well I remember last year it was a nightmare Presidents weekend so the lack of snow does help speed traffic long! Happy Presidents’ Day everyone
