When you get up further in NH there are some seasonal roads that are nice shortcuts in the summer, but have gates on either end and get shut off in the winter.

Utah. I got stuck going the long way to Park City a couple years ago cause seasonal roads were still closed, in July.

The road to Clingman's Dome in East Tennessee gets closed. I'm sure there are a few others..

Most mountain states do.

Yep, a bunch of passes over the Sierras get closed every year basically because they don't want to plow them of snow.

Black Hills of SD has some seasonally closed roads
Link Posted: 11/27/2014 12:24:36 PM EDT
NH also has a few roads I'm familiar with that are open year round, but usually have a simple single word sign that says "MUD".

If you drive a non 4WD vehicle down them in March or April, and it's above freezing, you may be calling a tow truck.

Michigan has lots of seasonal roads once you head up north a bit.

Around here the National Forest 25 road that runs up the east side of St Helens get's closed in the winter until June. I was just up there yesterday and the gate was still open.

From a couple years ago, the snowmobilers make a snow ramp over the gate.

Oh yea! All the time... especially during winter.

Any of you other guys have seasonal road closures?

Oh yeah!

In winter we have DAILY road closures.

Pretty much any road that doesn't have residences or businesses on it is closed around December 1st. Some of the higher ones close earlier, some don't open until July/August.

Sometimes in the summer, too.

A few that I know of. Loveland pass isn't seasonal but it close quite often in the winter.

Getting to A-basin sucks when that happens.

WY used to do this.

I suspect the rest of the rockies were the same way.

Many many in the Yoop, we call them snowmobile trails during the winter.




Link Posted: 11/27/2014 12:49:44 PM EDT
We have seasonal roads, mainly on state land
They become snowmobile trails in the winter
There are other seasonal roads that cross unpopulated land that towns wont maintain in the winter
Those are shrinking in number with houses being built up on formerly unoccupied land

We have a lot in New York. Most are in the Adirondacks with a few in the Catskills and elsewhere. Many become snowmobile trails in winter.

We may or may not have snuck onto a few of them for some snow wheeling.

The roads in the back country are travel at your own risk year round.

Yep they always change too they close them for road construction in the summer

During break up or mud season depending on who is talking, I had to go pick up my ammo packages at a local bar that was over 10 miles away. UPS and Fedex couldn't deliver off the beaten track.

Bear Tooth Highway and Going to the Sun road, plus a bunch that either get closed, travel at your own risk / no winter maintenance.
