The Gila National Forest office would like to remind forest visitors that several roads have been impacted by the recent flooding here in New Mexico. Catron County received a majority of the damage, according to a news release.
The Forest Services asks that those planning to hunt and adventure during the fall season be prepared for the unexpected. In Catron County, several vehicles have become stuck trying to drive impassable forest roads. Please use caution when driving on roads that have been affected by the flooding as work continues on access roads.
Visitors are advised to check with local Ranger District Offices for current road information. Also, check weather conditions before you go to avoid being caught in a flash flood. Avoid camping along rivers, creeks, arroyos, or any low areas where floods can easily occur.
Pictured below are several pictures from the Forest Service to show the effects of the flooding.
