Saddlebag Lake Road: Closed for the winter season.

Bodie Road: The “Bodie Road” between US 395 and Bodie State Park is otherwise known as State Hwy 270, and is controlled by Caltrans. Please check for current information on the status of that road.

Cottonwood Canyon Road: The road is still snow-covered in the mid to upper elevations, and is closed/gated approximately 4 miles from the intersection with Hwy. 167.

Lundy Lake Road: Closed/gated approximately 6 miles from intersection with Hwy 395, at the Lundy Lake Resort. Snow has not been removed beyond the resort to the Trailhead, and is not passable in wheeled vehicles.     

Virginia Lakes Road: After a lengthy winter closure, snow removal operations have resumed on Virginia Lakes Road. The road closure has been moved up canyon and is now approximately 3 miles from Hwy 395, between ‘Campground 139’ and Dunderberg Meadows Road. Crews will continue to move the road closure up canyon as they plow a two-lane width. The road is expected to be open to Big Virginia Lake/Trailhead by fishing opener, April 27th. 

Rock Creek Road: Rock Creek Road is currently plowed to the snow park. Crews will resume snow removal activities in mid-April, and expect to have the road open as far as Rock Creek Lake by fishing opener, April 27th. 

Buckeye Road: Snow removal has not been performed on Buckeye Road. Travel in wheeled vehicles is not advised, and at your own risk.

Burcham Flat Road: Snow removal has not been performed on Burcham Flat Road. Travel in wheeled vehicles is not advised, and at your own risk.

NOTE: Many Forest Service roads remain impassable in wheeled vehicles. Although certain sections of roads may be dry, large snow drifts exist in the upper elevations and shaded locations, and are impassable in wheeled vehicles. Check local weather forecasts before any visits to remote areas, and be prepared.

Actual road closures and activity will be updated periodically – please consider these notices as warnings, and plan accordingly. Contact the Town of Mammoth Lakes for the status of roads within the town's limits (760-934-8054). Currently, Mono County does not manage snow removal in that area.
