Hikers and Zealand Hut guests: Please note that, as always, the Zealand Road will be closed for the winter by the U.S. Forest Service, and no private vehicles will be allowed. This year, the road is closed as of Monday, December 5; please note, whether there is snow on the ground or not, the road is closed (as is the gate). Parking will again be at the large winter parking lot on the north side of Route 302. No WMNF parking pass is required to park in the lot.
The Zealand Road will remain unplowed for the entire season; no logging activities will take place this winter.
The road will reopen in spring 2012 based on weather and conditions.
