RANGER OFFICAL NOTICE:
There is a damaged culvert half way along the 42 Traverse. 4WD access is not possible all the way through. If hunting please only 4WD to safe distance and then walk. Please consider an alternative location for long 4WD adventures.
Mountain Bikers and Hikers can still get through.
More information will be posted tomorrow about the repair timeframes.
Please share this with your family and friends who love 4 Wheel Driving on the 42 Traverse and may have planned to come down this weekend.
