Some Forest Roads Open Today

rutted road

Bridger Teton National Forest is opening many of its roads for the season today, but lingering snow and wet conditions are still limiting access in some areas. Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek reminds forest visitors that damage incurred by people driving on muddy roads before they have firmed up can cause costly damage and possible loss of access.  She says when people travel on wet roads, it can compromise the integrity of the road, it can push the road base around leading to deep rutting, and too often the road is spread beyond its boundaries by people trying to drive around the puddles. Among those roads still closed to vehicle travel she says are some that are very popular among local forest users. Among them are the upper stretches of the Grays River Road near Afton, parts of Fall Creek Road, and the Curtis Canyon road just past the overlook area. Other closures include the Shadow Mountain road, Ditch Creek Road, Mosquito Creek Road and the north fork of Fall Creek Road. Some of these roads may not become accessible until early June. Cernicek also asks visitors to watch for wildlife on the forest roads and the major highways as well – lowering speed for safety along the Snake River Canyon, Hoback Canyon, Togwotee Pass, Union Pass and Trapper’s Point.  The latest trail, road and campground conditions can be found online or by calling 739-5500.
