Local Roads Close for the Season

National Elk Refuge

One of the annual signs of the season in Jackson Hole is the closure of various roads in the national parks, on the national forest and on the National Elk Refuge.  Refuge Spokesperson Lori Iverson says after this week, a portion of the National Elk Refuge Road will be closed through the end of April in order to protect wintering wildlife on the reserve.  Iverson says that portion of the road extends from 3 ½ miles northeast of Broadway in Jackson through Curtis Canyon and Flat Creek Roads. However, 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. Elk season concludes at dusk December 15th and bison season runs through January 12th. Then after the hunting seasons conclude, Iverson says no public travel beyond the closure will be allowed.

  • Bigger trucks aren’t always better - August 19, 2014
    I recently had the rare opportunity to test a compact and a full-size pickup pretty much head-to-head. Going into it, I was pretty sure there was nothing the compact version could offer that I would like more than the full-size truck. But the Nissan Frontier, despite its size, is no less truck than the Nissan […]
