The Idaho Panhandle National Forests will be reopening several forest gates in grizzly bear management units in coming weeks. Gates should open, depending on weather conditions and available personnel, November 16 in the Selkirk Mountains and December 1 in the Purcell and Cabinet Mountains.

Members of the public traveling on national forest system lands are advised to obtain a free Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) at any Forest Service Ranger District headquarters.

Roads that will be opened are displayed on the MVUM. For specific questions on scheduled gate openings, please contact the applicable ranger district. In Boundary County, call (208) 267-5561.
