SALT LAKE CITY — The Uintah-Wasatch-Cache National Forest has rescinded closures in the Diamond Fork area originally made during the Pole Creek Fire.

In a press release, the Forest Service said all areas, roads and trails north of Highway 6 are now open, along with Loop A in the Diamond Fork campground.

However, there is no water or garbage pickup available in the campground, so campers are asked to pack-out what they pack-in.

The Forest Service also gave a list of roads and areas accessible to hunters and other visitors in the Mount Nebo area:

  • Santaquin Canyon to Trumbolt day-use site
  • Mona Pole road, until the intersection with Mount Nebo Scenic Byway
  • Mount Nebo Scenic Byway is open on the south end from the Forest boundary to the intersection with the Mona Pole road
  • Pole Creek road is open until the end of the road, with access to the Haystack Hill area
  • Salt Creek road to Cottonwood campground

Some closures are still in effect. See the map below to see all current closures.
