Forest Winter Rules Start Sunday

by Jackson Hole Radio News

The Jackson Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest is reminding forest visitors that winter wildlife closures are in effect beginning December 1st. The annual closure affects all roads south of the Gros Ventre Road on the district. Some roads such as Shadow Mountain that access higher elevations were gated November 27th to prevent vehicles from becoming trapped. Additionally, the requirement that dogs be leashed in trailhead areas such as Cache Creek, Game Creek and Teton Pass, goes into effect December 1st as well. Dogs are also required to be on a leash on the first sections of the Game Creek and Putt-putt Trail. Winter travel maps are available at district offices or online for your mobile device for Android and Apple operating systems.
