    We found snow was still pretty deep in The Wild River Wilderness. We actually had to use snow shoes.

    Rt 113 through Evans Notch is open as of this afternoon. I went up from Rt 2 in Gilead. The Wild River Rd to the campground is still gated, however.

    Thanks for posting - the FS website isn't being updated like it used to (some roads were never marked closed last fall). They'd be better up just putting up the phone number if it's not going to be a reliable resource.

    They were pretty quick about posting some of the other roads east of Evans Notch as they opened (Patte Brook, for example). I think 113 may have just opened yesterday morning. I did notice that some in the fall were never marked as closed.

    Looks like they updated the page. There are now sortable columns (although the 'Last Update' sort doesn't work). Zealand Road is now open, as it Sandwich Notch and Upper Hall Pond.

    Tripoli Road Open From Waterville Side

    Tripoli Road from Waterville side is open despite what the WMNF website says. Just drove to the Mt. Osceola trailhead.

    It's the journey, not the destination

    Well, well. Wild River road opened yesterday. Maybe I'll change my hiking plans this weekend.

    I drove by Haystack rd - FR304 and Gale River Rd on Friday 5/19 - Both are open. I can also confirm that Tripoli rd is open - both sides.

    FYI, I spoke with someone as the USFS office last week. the indicated the Long Pond Road is likely to remain closed until a major project is done on it, likely next year. I'm sure the recent weather hasn't helped much.

    Read on netc.com that the Wild River road is now gated. Wont be too much longer before 113 is closed off.
