Island Park snowmobile

Winter Travel regulations will go into effect on Thursday for the Palisades Ranger District of Caribou-Targhee National Forest.  Winter snow conditions are becoming such that cross-country travel off Forest Service roads and trails will be permitted using snowmobiles.  Most of the Palisades District is open to cross country travel by snowmobiles, except big game winter range areas such as Fall Creek and along the South Fork of the Snake River.  However, Fall Creek Road from Swan Valley up to Skyline Ridge is a designated snowmobile route through important elk and deer winter range.  Animals can be viewed from the road, but snowmobiles are not allowed to leave the road.  Kelly Canyon and Kelly Canyon Ski Area are also closed to snowmobiles.   Recreationists are reminded to stop at the local Forest Service office or the Easter Idaho Visitor’s Center in Idaho Falls for information on the winter travel regulations showing areas they can or     cannot go.

  • Retaking hunter safety was a good idea - September 16, 2014
    My son Colby and I spent every night last week learning the difference between legal and ethical, a hangfire or a misfire, and the legal calibers for deer or elk.
