Sparks, Nevada, May 19, 2017 - The 2017 “rain on snow and wind” events in eastern California and Nevada have caused damage to the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest’s road and trail systems. In order to compile a list of roads and trails that need to be repaired, Forest officials are asking visitors to report any road and/or trail damage they discover while enjoying the Forest.

The public can report any road and/or trail damage to Leah Johnson at 775-331-6444 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Helpful information includes:

  • Ranger District
  • Forest Service road or trail number
  • Location or directions (e.g. mileage from the start of the road/trail or intersection)
  • If possible, map or GPS coordinates
  • County
  • Description of damage (culvert out, flooding, ruts, slide, washout, etc.)
  • Name, telephone number, and email of person reporting damage (in case Ranger District has additional questions.)
  • Provide any cell phone photos (if possible one photo showing scale of the damage)

Many roads and trails are still not yet accessible due to the heavy winter snowpack found at higher elevations. Forest officials expect to find additional damage, both on roads and trails, as the snowpack melts. The public should respect road and trail closures and take an alternate route if they come upon a damaged or flooded road or trail, so not to cause further damage.
