Forest Service Road (FSR) 66 will be available for use as the detour route depending on snow levels. FSR 66 begins at the junction of FSR 39 and FSR 66 (also referred to as Duck Creek, Fish Lake Road, Twin Lakes Road, or Clear Creek Road) and continues west then south before connecting with Baker County Road 999, just north of Halfway. The detour route is 30 miles in length and is a well-maintained single-lane gravel road with pullouts. The route is suitable for vehicles with trailers; however it is not recommended for motor homes. If unsure of suitability, please contact the Wallowa Mountains Office at 541-426-5546 or the Pine Field Office at 541-742-6705.
Visitors should be aware that the Wallowa Mountain Loop Road and FSR 66 are often closed by snow from late October through late June, and are not passable by automobiles during this time period. Both FSR 66 and FSR 39 are snowmobile routes.
