Some Forest Roads Impassable
Written by Andrew-Rossi on June 22, 2017
Several roads and non-motorized trails on the Wapiti, Clarks Fork, and Greybull Ranger Districts of the Shoshone National Forest have been severely impacted by the continued melt off of above normal snowpack.
Several non-motorized trails are noted as dangerous and currently impassable, and should not be traveled by any user: those are the Boulder Basin, Jack Creek, and Greybull River trails.
Other roads are currently closed to vehicles due to hazardous conditions and resource concerns – those include the Brown Creek, South Fork Wood River and Dick Creek Access roads; Sweetwater Road, Elk Fork, Belknap Access and Marquette Access. Additionally, the Kirwin Road is impassable from the Double D Ranch to Kirwin.
Since the situation is dynamic, visitors are encouraged to check with the Wapiti Ranger District office for the latest information on road and trail closures.
