Pine Creek Fire-retardant

Due to fire suppression efforts The Bridger-Teton National Forest has closed the Cache Creek Game Creek loop and all areas within that loop up to the Forest boundary due to the Little Horse Thief fire.

Ferrin’s Trail is closed. Rosie’s Ridge and trails leading to top of Snow King are closed. All trails in the Snow King area are closed, except for a loop in the Hagen, Putt-Putt and Cache Creek trail within the first half mile from the parking lot at the Cache Trailhead to the Bar T 5 area.

Fire officials say it is unsafe for anyone to be back in the Cache creek Drainage and with all of the air traffic, it is critical that no paragliders recreate within that area or try to launch at the Wilson Canyon ridge. Also, the chairlift at Snow King will not operate today.

Residents of Deer Drive, Elk Drive and Horse Thief Lane are advised there will continue to be firefighter emergency vehicle and heavy machinery activity in the area of the subdivision.

The fire, now estimated at about 750 acres, is moving south towards Game Creek Drainage. There is no immediate threat to Game Creek. There is no immediate threat to Snow King. There are no structures threatened.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
