Part of West Side Hungry Horse Reservoir Road closes

| June 15, 2022 12:50 PM

The Flathead Forest on Wednesday closed the West-Side Hungry Horse Reservoir Road between Mazie Creek Road and Graves Creek Road due to a rockslide and an unstable slump area. The area is located along the north shore of Graves Bay, between mile markers 29.7 and 33.4. The closure is in effect until the end of August, but could be lifted sooner if conditions allow, the Forest Service stated in a media release.

Mazie Creek Road is planned to open as scheduled on July 1.

Graves Creek Road, Graves Creek Campground and Handkerchief Lake Campground remain open, but must be accessed by using the East-Side Hungry Horse Reservoir Road and driving around the reservoir.

A closure at the Blankenship Bridge area is being extended until water recedes.

The Old Steel Bridge Fishing Access Site along the Flathead River in Evergreen remained closed, and access was limited at Presenting and Kokanee Bend.
