Garden Mountain Road/Round Mountain Road (FR #610) Temporarily Closed (EDRD)
Due to road damage on private land, adjacent land owners have gated and closed the private land portion of Garden Mountain Road/Round Mountain Road from all public travel. This is no longer a through road; approximately 2.5 miles of the road is inaccessible. The closed private section begins in Burke's Garden on Back Rd/666 and ends after approximately 2 miles. Approximately an additional half mile is closed on the National Forest in order to stop westbound traffic at the last safe turn around.
