Forest Road 5010, on the east side of the Chewuch River, has substantial mud and debris on the road approximately seven miles from Road 37 (Boulder Creek Road). I didn't ride through it but it might well be passable.

There is debris on FS Road 51 (Chewuch River Road) approximately 2 miles north of Falls Creek Campground. A truck and horse trailer appear to be stuck and blocking the road at 2.5 miles.
