ADVISORY: Vehicle Theft at FS Trailheads
The Forest Service reports some vehicle thefts are occurring by the use of a rollback truck. When a Forest visitor parks on a road it is very easy to back the truck directly to the vehicle, lower the bed and winch the vehicle onto the truck in a few minutes. It could be a truck with flashing red or yellow lights and look like a legitimate service call. It is suggested that if you park on the Forest Service road before the gate, that you try to park at an angle that would make the above type of retrieval more difficult.
