Little Horsethief Area Reopened

The Jackson Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest has removed the closure order for the Little Horsethief Canyon fire area now.  Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says the closure was first implemented for public safety on September 9th and was amended several times to allow for recreation opportunities in area. Now, finally all the trails within the Snow King and Game Creek areas are open for recreation until December first when the wildlife winter range restrictions take effect.  Cernicek cautions that the Little Horsethief Canyon Fire burned into aspen stands as well as previously existing bug kill stands of conifers; so while many of the trees will display very obvious signs of damage, aspen trees are shallow rooted and may appear healthy but can be deadly. Just a small amount of moisture in the area may loosen the soil requiring little wind to cause an aspen to fall. Cernicek says if your plan to visit any fire area, remain alert and know before you go what hazards you may encounter there.
