Hi all,

Anyone know if the road to the Butler Peak fire lookout has re-opened? Thanks!

It is still closed to vehicle traffic. They are still removing trees in the area. I doubt it will be open this year, but not sure of that fact.

Your welcome. I'm in that area all the time.
The road is closed to the public, but the lookout should be staffed on certain days. R and Cammy would know better as the volunteer up there.

The Forest Service has finally reopened 2N13 (Snow Slide Road) between Fawnskin and Green Valley Lake after having the road closed for 7 years since the Butler 2 Fire. Note, however, that the spur road to Butler Peak Lookout (2N13C) is still closed to vehicle traffic. At this time, we don't know if 2N13C will open this year or not.

Here's a map showing 2N13 that's been reopened (highlighted in blue) [Click Here]

Yup. They have opened the first gate, but not the second. There are still dead trees falling close to the tower. Currently the tower is not being staffed. Part of the road is torn up from winter, and it hasn't been graded yet.

I rode 2N13 on my dual-sport motorcycle on Saturday from the Fawnskin area to GVL and it was nice having the road open again though I can confirm that it looks like there is a lot of logging going-on in the area. The road got a bit rougher just past the spur road to Butler Peak, including one small water crossing but all in-all it's not too bad. There is one overlook close to GVL where it's easy to see how much damage the fire did, however it is nice to see how well the underbrush is doing. I also saw many small streams of water crossing the trail which, in the middle of this drought, was nice to see.

I'm hoping that 2N13C gets re-opened sometime this summer.

Kevin

By the by. Just received our Property Tax Bill. Don’t mind just make it so we can use the services.

Open letter to BBCSD
Hoping that Big Bear City will enact a new area where those of us who can’t use the new trash bins because of being part-timers and not wanting to leave it out from Sunday to Tuesday for animals to tip can use when we leave to drop off our trash in a safe place. Especially since we are paying for it on our taxes and only use it occasionally Please just a thought. Transfer station put some dumpsters out front for easier drop off or the main office could have some dumpsters for us to use Thanks

Felt bad for the driver. Gotta be the worst! He was doing his best but obviously had never been up 18 and had NO idea how sharp that upper hairpin really is.

Anyone hear anything about the semi stuck on the hairpins this morning? I was a few cars back. Watched the non-thinking person in front of me try to pass a car so she could squeeze through. (no chance!) That car blocked her or it could have been worse!
