Forest Service Temporarily Closes Road on Diamond Mountain

Lassen National Forest has announced the closure of a Forest Service road in an area burned by last year’s Sheep Fire on Diamond Mountain for public safety while logging crews remove hazard trees.

The portion of the road, designated as No. 29N43 on Forest Service maps, is located within the Eagle Lake Ranger District within the Diamond Mountains.

During this Closure Order, the LNF staff and Timber Sale contractors will be removing hazard trees and logging timber.

The closure is effective from April 16th, 2021, through April 30th, 2021.

The specific Closure of No. 29N43 is from its intersection with the Forest Service Property boundary on Township 29 North Range 12 East Section 6, continuing south to its junction with the southern border of section 5 in Township 29 North Range 12 East.

“This closure mitigates the potential of roadside hazards due to falling trees and logging equipment,” said Deb Bumpus, Forest Supervisor, LNF. “Through this effort, it ensures the safety of both the public and the LNF staff.”

According to 36 CFR 261.50(e), the following persons are exempt from this Order:

  • Persons with a permit from the Forest Service specifically authorizing the otherwise prohibited act or omission.
  • Persons with a contract from the Forest Service authorizing work on the closed road are exempt from the prohibition listed above to the extent authorized by the contract.
  • Any Federal, State, or local officer or member of an organized rescue or fire fighting force in the performance of an official duty.
