SEASONAL ROAD AND TRAIL CLOSURES BEGIN DECEMBER 1, 2018 for SAWTOOTH NATIONAL FOREST

 

JEROME, IDAHO – Beginning December 1, 2018 Seasonal Closures for Roads and Trails go into effect. This is intended to protect roads and trails from being harmed by vehicle traffic while they are wet and to protect winter wildlife habitat.  It also helps to keep the public from going into areas that are snow covered and dangerous if their vehicle become stuck. 

 

We also want to urge the public to stay away from wildlife wintering on the Forest.  Please do not approach them.  They need to use all of their energy to stay alive during the winter.

 

Winter recreation closures also become effective in some areas beginning on Saturday.  Please consult the Sawtooth National Forest Winter Visitor Maps, which are available at any Sawtooth Forest office to learn about the closures.

 

Stop by any Sawtooth National Forest office to pick up your Motor Vehicle Use Map or to find out current information for your visit to the Forest.
