Yup again, what critter said.

Total BS.
Nothing about the closures I could find on the web.
The land in Utah county is tied up by the county attorneys office.
Closures through the Utah county Sheriff's office.
Same thing on the Manti side in Lakefork. That one is closed for at LEAST 1 year aswell.......

Actually Forest Service road closures are not uncommon for areas that have been hit hard by fires.

They do it all the time here in Colorado usually citing safety concerns due to dead timber that might come down on a unsuspecting hiker of someone.

Last years fires were devastating all over the State for sure. About 20 years ago the Nebo went up in flames, but less acreage was burned. The wildlife came back very well, as did the vegetation from more sunlight reaching the ground from the burnt canopy.


I hope within a short future the Nebo will become what it once was. I doubt that's possible, but we can always hope. I think it went downhill quick once they paved the road over the loop. (1981 if I remember correct)

If there is significant areas that are going to be closed and more tightly compress the hunting pressure in the north i could definetly start my scouting efforts in the sanpitch areas and work myself up to the Nebo area throughout the summer.

I have never even driven the loop so im hoping it opens up so i can take a drive through it this summer.

There should be a BAER report somewhere on post fire closures and reclamation. They usually show up on the Inciweb site but it looks like the information there is for current year only.
Maybe if you google the fire name it will show up. I don't remember the name of the fire. Sorry.

I saw a post on facebook today saying they will likely open the nebo loop around June 10th, so should be opened up for scouting soon.

I spent yesterday afternoon up top Spencer Fork and Page Fork.
The Spencer deer heard is not in very good shape.
Between winter kill and coyotes, lowest numbers Ive seen there in several years.

And for the Nebo loop,
Still 5 to 6 foot snow driffs across the top from Black Canyon, Holman, to below Beaver Dam on the Payson side.

Even if they unlocked gates,
It would not even be passible for at least another month.

I attempted to go put out trail cams and check others that I had left out prior to the fire. I was on my dirt bike. I only made it 2 miles total. For the first mile I would have been better off using a jet boat, for the last mile I would have been better off using a snowmobile. After hammering drifts for a ways, I quit. I’m betting it’s the first to mid July before I’m getting anywhere near where I want to go. Pretty crazy how much snow is still left
