Default *Update* Squamish FSR closure

*Update*
More information

Effective noon, July 23, 2015, the road closure for the Squamish Forest Service(FSR) has moved northward from zero kilometer (km) on the Squamish FSR to the 27km mark on the Squamish FSR. The road closure amendment opens up all of the Ashlu River and valley for public use and moves the security check point north of the Shovelnose Creek river rafting insertion site.
