Researchers & Visitors – Important Safety Notice

Winter tires required.  In addition, chains and 4WD may be required in deeper snow areas or where needed for driving safely.  Most of the north half of the Research Forest is developing a snowpack.  BE PREPARED FOR RAPIDLY CHANGING CONDITIONS.

Logging crews and equipment may be working on Road R, R20, and F60 and quarry at Road k (@ 7.5km).  Obey all signs and watch for flag persons.  Do not enter active work zones or pass equipment working, unless you receive clearance from the operator.

Logging trucks and lowbeds may be hauling.  Radio (available from MKRF office) must be used to call kilometers both “up” and “down” if travelling active haul roads.  Logging trucks, lowbeds and other heavy vehicles always have the right-of-way – you are required to pull over in a safe location to let them pass, well before they reach you.

Before heading out, please talk to an MKRF staff member for the latest updates and sign out a radio if needed.

Drive with caution and obey the speed limit (30km/h) at all times.  Watch for hikers and school children on the roads.
