Elk Refuge Road Closed

National Elk Refuge

In conjunction with Bridger–Teton National Forest winter travel restrictions, a portion of the National Elk Refuge Road has been closed to public travel as of Saturday and will not reopen until April 30th.  The reason for the move is to protect wintering wildlife on the refuge. The closure begins approximately 3½ miles northeast of the Refuge’s entrance on Broadway in Jackson and includes both Curtis Canyon and Flat Creek roads.  Only elk and bison hunters with National Elk Refuge permits will be allowed to drive through the closure to access hunt parking lots during the days their permits are valid. Refuge officials stress that hunters must drive directly to the designated lots to park and stay within the specified boundaries while hunting. The elk season concludes at dusk on Sunday, December 16th , but the bison season continues through January 6th. Meanwhile, visitors and residents using the open portion of the Refuge Road are confined to the roadway only with no off–road travel, including walking, skiing, or other recreational Activities permitted. As always, dogs must be leashed at all times.
