Gold Lake Road and the Blairsden Grade are two places you don’t want to be right now. With motorists trying to find any way through the mountains, apparently Google maps has taken some people to the Gold Lake Highway, which is closed for the winter. The Gold Lake Highway links Highway 49 near Bassetts to Graeagle. There are reports of 40 vehicles stuck on Gold Lake Road near Graeagle and another line of vehicles stuck on the Blairsden Grade.
Plumas County Search and Rescue is responding to the Gold Lake Road area to assist.
