Big Piney Ranger District: Last Updated June 2nd, 2016

  • South Piney Creek Road (FS #10128) There is a major washout, on Thompson Pass as a result of the heavy rains and runoff from winter snowpack.  This washout is impassable to full sized vehicles and restricts access to LaBarge Creek from Snyder Basin on the Big Piney Ranger District.  ATV’s/UTV’s/Dirtbikes may be able to navigate through this washout, but do so at their own risk, and travel is not recommended as the area is very unstable.  The Big Piney Ranger District is working with the Bridger-Teton NF engineering department to repair this road issue.  Please travel carefully.
  • Wyoming Range Road (FS #10046) There is a washout on the Wyoming Range Road, near Coal Creek, 2.5 miles north of South Piney, on the Big Piney Ranger District, as a result of heavy rains in May and runoff from winter snowpack.  This washout is passable by full sized vehicles at this time.  Trailer traffic is not recommended as the roadway is quite narrow. The Big Piney Ranger District is working with the Bridger-Teton NF engineering department to repair this road issue.  Please travel carefully.
