TWIN FALLS, ID – The Minidoka Ranger District will extend road and motorized trails restrictions currently in place until noon on May 26 2017 or until rescinded by the Forest Supervisor whichever comes first to protect for public health and safety, and protect our transportation infrastructure.  Higher than normal snowpack and delayed spring melt has a lot of the south hills still inaccessible.
