Salmo-Priest access restored
Forest Service clears rock slide
The main access to Salmon-Priest Wilderness trailheads was opened for vehicle traffic last week as Colville National Forest crews cleared a major rock slide.
Colville National Forest Road 2220, the route to Salmo Mountain Lookout and Gypsy Meadows northeast of Sullivan Lake, had been blocked for several weeks by a huge boulder, leaving the passage only for cyclists and ATVs.
A forest spokeswoman said Wednesday that all major vehicle routes on the forest are open.
