Forest Roads Open On Caribou-Targhee

usfs

While flooding  and landslides delay the opening on many roads on the Bridger-Teton National Forest, conditions on the Caribou-Targhee National Forest are slowly becoming suitable to support vehicle traffic on most roads and some trails in the Ashton and Island Park area without causing resource damage.  District Ranger, Elizabeth Davy cautions that conditions are still marginal for summer travel but some of the roads are slowly opening.  The district asks that users stay on designated travel routes and use good judgment regarding travel on roads and trails not yet sufficiently dry to prevent resource damage.  Many roads are still very muddy due to all the moisture received over the weekend.  “If you are leaving ruts in the road or trail surface,” Davy says, “you shouldn’t be driving on them.”  Additional closures or restrictions may be made at any time for resource protection or public safety.  Davy cautions that road shoulders are soft so caution should be used when vehicles pass.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
  • Quiet, Seasonal Weather Expected Today - October 22, 2014
