The wiki is the summay post at the very top of the page. Anyone can edit that post. ALL road updates MUST go there or this thread will lose its usefulness if the wiki is not up to date and folks have to wade thru this thread to get the latest info.

Not so much a closure but limited access on Lake Chelan right now. I was planning on doing the Lakeshore Trail next week as May 1 is the typical starting date for getting off at Prince Creek. Due to slower than usual snowmelt and runnoff, the lake level is too low to allow the boat to dock there. So until things warm and the water level rises, there is no Lady of the Lake access to Prince Creek or other spots along the shore. Lucerne and Stehekin are accessable, but not Prince Creek.

Olympic National Forest Closes Roads Work on two road projects will close major access routes on the Pacific Ranger District of the Olympic National Forest starting this month. Repairs will close Donkey Creek Road (Forest Service Road 22) at milepost 12.2 July 15-Aug. 16 and Forest Service Road 23 at milepost 22.2 July 18-Aug. 16. Both roads lead to the Wynoochee Recreation Area, which can be accessed out of Montesano, Wash., during the closure. For more information contact the Olympic National Forest at 360-765-2200 or 360-288-2525. Learn more about the Olympic National Forest at http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/olympic --- Tried to update the Wiki as best I could but you all might need to adjust it. I have no idea if FS23 and FS22 are both considered Donkey Creek Road. *shrug*

Road to Mowich Lake opened today (07/22/2011). Still a lot of snow up there so be prepared for that if you drive up (no issues on the road/drive which looks freshly graded and pot hole free for now).

If you posted conditions on roads, please update if you have an update. I removed some obvious notes (mainly stuff like "snow melted at Barlow Pass") but maybe this can be cleaned up if anyone has time & knowledge...?

Hey all I just talked to the darrington ranger station and they said the law suit has been dismist and they are now just waiting for funding.they told me that the road was open to huckelberry mountain.not sure how long that will take but i do love the area at buck creek and downey creek. I have made the hike 2 times when the road was closed at the 12 mile marker.I'm not sure what can be be done to come up with the funds but i'm sure what funds were there was spent on court cost. I'm not sure how farit is from huckelberry mountain to downey.I just know it is a way.

Updated the Wiki, but for those of interest, North Fork Snoqualmie Road (FS 57) will be closed below the Spur 10 gate for 3 weeks starting 8/22/2011--Reason is the County is repairing the area that washed out around McLeod Lake last year. Not sure where this leaves Hancock Forest Rec Permittees. Good news, should be shorter than the Wagner Bridge closure....
