Pittsburgh landing is closed

Just in case anyone was planning on getting some big water hells canyon. Pittsburgh is closed..


A major mudslide and road failure has closed the White Bird-Pittsburg Landing Road in Idaho County, just east of the #HellsCanyon National Recreation Area boundary. All recreation facilities at Pittsburg Landing (campground, trailhead, boat launch) are closed for public safety until further notice - please avoid the area. The road is expected to be closed for at least a week.

For local emergency information, contact the Idaho County Sheriff's Office at (20 983-1100.

Update April 17 my highlight

Deer Creek Road to Pittsburg Landing in the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area remains closed until further notice, and there is no estimated date of reopening. The road is unsafe for public travel - the surface has slumped by 6 to 8 inches, the slide continues to move unpredictably and heavy rains are in the forecast.
There have been further reports of people attempting to evade the closure; the Idaho County Sheriff's Office is actively patrolling and writing citations. Idaho County is dealing with extensive flooding issues and these people are putting an additional strain on first responders. Please do not put yourself or others at risk by attempting to evade the closure - a day on the river is not worth it.
We will welcome folks back as soon as the road is safe to travel again. Thank you for your cooperation.
