BEND, OR -- Several Forest Service gates west of Bend will remain closed until conditions improve. The gates prevent motorized vehicles from entering critical wildlife habitat, between December and March. But, officials say the late-season snow and wet conditions necessitate a delay to protect resources.

 

The three gates are across from Widgi Creek Golf Course, at the Forest Road 4604 and 4610 junction, and the gate just past Phil’s Trailhead on FS Rd 4604.

 

The Forest Service plans to open the gates to vehicles when forest roads are clear of snow and dry. They're open to bikes and pedestrians, year-round.
