PUBLIC LANDS -- Increasing fire danger has prompted the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to close Towell Falls Road in the Bureau of Land Management Spokane District’s Rock Creek management area to motorized traffic for the summer.

The Rock Creek management area, better known as Escure Ranch, is about 20 miles south of Sprague Washington in Whitman and Adams Counties.

The 3.2-mile dirt road into the Towell Falls area of Rock Creek remains open to hikers, equestrians and mountain bikers.

Info: (509) 536-1200.
