The Forest Service reminds visitors the Highland Lookout Road (Forest Road 8514) south of Butte is closed to public use. The road has been closed since 1989 to provide resource protection.
This steep, narrow and multiple switchback road is closed by a gate that was vandalized last fall leaving the road open. Forest crews are in the process of repairing the gate and in the interim reflective barriers have been placed at the gate closure. The Forest Service is asking visitors to respect the closure and not remove the barriers.
