Always use caution when travelling on active forest service roads, active logging roads may have restricted or no access.

Obey all posted signs on active forest service roads

Forest roads are not built to the same standards as public highways. For example, they often have sharp, blind corners and narrow sections. All drivers must be prepared to react to unexpected conditions and to be able to stop safely. For your own sake, stay alert and always be ready to take evasive action. Stay Alert on active forest service roads.

Logging trucks use all or most of the road width because of their size. This can pose a challenge for oncoming traffic since active forest service roads are often single lane or a lane-and-a-half wide, and bridges are almost always single-lane. Please give logging trucks and other industrial traffic the right-of-way. Due to their size, they just can’t manoeuvre the way personal vehicles can. Loaded logging trucks definitely have the right-of-weight! When you see a logging truck or any other heavy equipment coming, get to a turnout and let the oncoming vehicle pass by. You may find turnouts on either side of the road — whichever side it’s on, get to it and wait until it is safe to proceed. Remember that in winter, road conditions may be very slippery. Allow extra time and space for equipment to pass.
