Sunday marks the start of winter travel restrictions on much of the Jackson Ranger District on the Bridger-Teton National Forest.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says these restrictions include areas of crucial wildlife winter range in Teton County that are closed to all human presence; including Josie’s Ridge, the K-C Trail, Wilson Canyon, portions of the Gros Ventre Drainage and slopes above the Putt-putt Trail in Cache Creek Canyon. Cernicek says these winter wildlife restrictions are issued each year to allow the wildlife there to forage, rest and be those areas without the interruptions from humans. Additionally, Cernicek says those heading into areas that are still open need to be ready for rapidly changing conditions. Cernicek says, “A lot of our roads could be drifted with snow or frozen, impassable due to landslides or flooded out as a stream gets dammed up and then washes over a roadway; and so we really encourage visitors to the forest to always be prepared for the unexpected.” Cernicek urges those venturing into the forest this changeable time of year to let someone know where they are going and when they expect to return.
