Forest roads damaged

Forest roads

Caribou Targhee National Forest report considerable damage was done by careless individuals over Memorial Weekend. Visitation to the Caribou-Targhee is increasing as more individuals turn to the outdoors to rid themselves of cabin fever.

Forest officials point out that some areas are in an awkward time between snowmelt, mud and dry conditions and severe resource damage is possible.

Vehicle use on saturated trails, roads and hillside areas can easily damage the land causing permanent ruts, bog holes and erosion. Several of the roads throughout the forest were significantly damaged in this way over the weekend.
