Elden Lookout Road (Forest Road 557) is closed to motor vehicles due to post-fire flooding in the Museum Fire burned area.
The road will remain closed to motor vehicles throughout the duration of the summer monsoon season due to potential flood-related hazards, such as falling rocks and trees and flood waters that can trap vehicles and injure motorists.
While Elden Lookout Road will remain open to non-motorized use, trails in the area may be impassable and hazardous. The public is urged to use caution while in the area due to heavy equipment that may be assessing damage and conducting road work.
The road closure may continue post-monsoon season depending on the severity of long-term road damage.
