And you have to search each BLM or NF management district to find them.
Here's a good starting point:

Lots of good information everybody. Sounds like at this point I'll put my money into CN to start and get the resources for paper maps. I have my national forest maps so in combo I think that should work pretty well (and I can always look up road closures on the websites). I'm looking forward to not getting lost like a couple of weeks ago. It was fine - the side roads kept ending until there was only one way to go, but still....And I missed out on some roads in another area because I wasn't sure I was in the right spot at all and the gas situation could have gotten bad.

We suffered this type of riding for almost 30 years before GPS units came out. Now we generally create a planned track for a ride and do some research about what kind of land we are riding on. But we sometimes do leave some leeway for off-track exploring. Even doing this things often don't work out.

I don't know how you plan to find road closures on a web site. Most CN roads are closed because they are behind locked gates on private land and have never been open. They have no number associated with them.
