Gypsy Meadows access blocked

Rockslide closes Colville Forest Road

Forest Road 2220, the main Colville National Forest access to the Salmo Priest Wilderness area, Gypsy Meadows, and the Salmo Trail, is currently obstructed by a very large piece of rock that slid downhill and came to rest near mile post 4.0.

The rock is blocking the entire road making all motorized through- traffic impossible.

The obstruction is above the northernmost junction between 2220 and upper end of Road 2212 (Highline Road).

Forest officials believe it could be at least a month before resources are available to break the obstruction up and haul it away.

Info: Sullivan Lake Ranger Station at (509) 446-7500.
