Roman Nose Closed

By The Spokesman-Review


Access to the Selkirk Mountains’ popular Roman Nose Lakes camping and hiking area will be closed for several weeks for major construction and improvements to the area, according to the Bonners Ferry Ranger District.

When work is completed, recreation at the area will change. A camping spur is being built with three standard sites and one group site.

Only hike-in camping will be allowed in the basin outside these developed sites, said Debbie Norton, district ranger. Vehicles no longer will be able to drive all the way to the lower lake. The parking area will be pulled back with a trail leading about a quarter mile to the lake.

Three new short trails will be added to the area, as well as a new outhouse.
