FAIRBANKS, AK — The Bureau of Land Management’s Eastern Interior Field Office has temporarily closed public access to the Nome Creek area in the White Mountains National Recreation Area due to ongoing wildland fire activity near US Creek.
The closure includes the Ophir Creek Campground, Mt. Prindle Campground, Table Top Mountain Trail, Quartz Creek Trail, and Nome Creek Road.
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities yesterday closed the US Creek Road, which provides the only road access to Nome Creek from the Steese Highway.
