Where to expect logging traffic on forest roads

If you plan to visit forest lands near the Mountain Loop or U.S. 2 on a weekday, you may need to watch out for logging traffic and intermittent road closure.

Drivers should also be prepared to back up or pull over to avoid heavy truck traffic on the narrow, winding one-way roads.
