Grooming on the West Fork Rock Creek, #2071 utilizes approximately half of the road, which is currently designated as open to non-motorized and snowmobile use during winter months (December 1 to April 15, annually) on Beartooth Motor Vehicle Use Maps. A snowmobile with approximately a 6’5” groomer is utilized to provide a skating lane and nordic track up and back on the road. Depending on snowfall the grooming occurs 2-3 times per month during the winter closure.
Comments from the public regarding the proposal should be sent to the Beartooth Ranger District by November 9, 2012 at Beartooth Ranger District, 6811 U.S. Highway 212, Red Lodge, MT 59068. For further information or questions please contact Jeff Gildehaus at the Beartooth Ranger District Office in person, by phone at (406) 446-2103; or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
