Cache Creek Trailhead To Close

hazard tree removal

Bridger Teton National Forest officials will close the Cache Creek Trailhead tomorrow morning to enable crews to remove hazard trees there.  Those trees are located between the trailhead and the Bar-T-5 cook-site within the first mile of the trail.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says those trees became weakened for a variety of reasons and now threaten the safety of forest users.  Cernicek says there is a chance that the trees could fall, damage equipment and hurt people.  Consequently, she says the forest is going to mitigate that before it becomes a problem. Cernicek says the closure is temporary, and the trail will be reopened as soon as the tree removal project is over.
