Current Conditions Reports by Ranger District

Conditions can change rapidly. Always check weather reports and current avalanche conditions prior to your trip.

The summer travel season opened on May 21st. Please visit the local District Office to check for areas that may have seasonal, temporary wildlife closures in place. Motor vehicle use maps (MVUMs) are available online or at all district offices. MVUMs show forest routes that are designated as open or restricted to different types of motor vehicles and seasonal designations. It is your responsibility to know where and when you can go. MVUMs also provide information about motorized access to dispersed camping sites (sites outside of campgrounds). See our MVUMs here:

For the most current road and trail condition reports for each district, see our district reports section below.
