The Forest Service temporarily closed Forest Road 616 accessing Low Moor Shooting Range in Alleghany County and Forest Road 1312 accessing Bath County Shooting Range. Recent bad weather made the roads unsafe for vehicle travel. The public can walk into both ranges while the roads are closed. Parking for Low Moor Shooting Range is available at the locked gate with a ¼-mile walk to the range. Visitors can walk .7 miles into Bath County Shooting Range after parking across State Road 619 from the closed gate. Gates to the Low Moor and Bath County Shooting Ranges are closed until suitable repairs can be made to the access roads, possibly by spring, if weather permits.
