Summer Travel Regulations took effect Monday for the Palisades Ranger District of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. Conditions at the lower elevations are suitable to support vehicle traffic on many roads and some trails now without causing resource damage. However, District Ranger Tracy Hollingshead asks that users stay on designated travel routes and use good judgment regarding travel on roads and trails not yet sufficiently dry to prevent damage. Travel is still not recommended on the Upper Rainey Creek Road due to snow drifts and wet conditions there. Violation notices can be issued to motorists causing resource damage. Meanwhile, Palisades Dam is now closed to public motorized use. The new access to the Calamity and Bear Creek areas is over the new bridge located below the dam.
