    This time I have to assume the FS webmaster just did not do their job. I say that because they back dated the "last updated" date to 10/31 when they actually made the change 11/3 around 2pm or 3pm.

    I changed the TrailsNH forest road status to go crowed sourced last summer. For this storm the crowed source worked really well. The crowed sourced status was days ahead of the FS website. If you see a forest road close or open, PLEASE change it on TrailsNH.

    To update a forest road status on TrailsNH:
    - go to http://trailsnh.com/reports/Forest-Roads-Gates.php
    - login (top right on the menu bar) requires a Facebook or Google account
    - find the road listed and click "Change status to ..."
    - enter a comment: what you know about the change
    - if you have a reference to link to for more info (or proof) include it
    - and click Save.


    Days later when WMNF updates their website, TrailsNH will mark your post as "Confirmed On {some date} By WMNF".
    See Haystack Road (FR 304) for an example.

    If they don't keep it reasonably updated they should just close it. They must know with social media the way it is now will do it's job to do it right or at least decent.. although the Snowmobile clubs have Facebook pages and so often both the public and the club don't update at times.

    If NETC reports are sustainable, maybe see if there is interest to list specific trail heads as structured data in the parking section and scrub those pages to deduce open/closed status? A GFM page could cover those development costs. Just a thought!

    Hi All,

    Anyone have the latest info on the Gale River Loop Road? I'm assuming it's closed and can't find any recent updates.

    My original plan to do Adams tomorrow is off the table at this point!

    Thanks!
