BLM Temporarily Closes Moose Creek Road Due To Flood Damage


The Bureau of Land Management has temporarily closed Moose Creek Road south of Butte due to flood damage.

Workers will repair the damage and install a new road drainage system starting next week, but for now the road is impassable beyond the gate at the Humbug Spires trailhead. The trail to the Spires remains open for the public to enjoy the popular hiking and climbing site.

For more information, call the Butte Field Office at (406) 533-7600.


The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
