Cache Creek users should expect a one-day closure soon


UPDATE: Cache Creek Drive on the Jackson Ranger District will be closed this evening (Monday, April 13) through tomorrow (Tuesday, April 14) to allow for road maintenance from the forest boundary to the trailhead. 

In what has become a bit of an annual event and rite of spring, the Forest Service will be closing off the Cache Creek trailhead and parking area soon for a day of maintenance.

The Jackson Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest is planning road maintenance for the approach from the Forest boundary and parking area at Cache Creek trailhead. The dirt road and parking area will be closed for approximately one day to perform road grading and repair. The timing of this closure will be dependent upon spring weather, as the roadbed will need to dry out some before work can be completed.

The Forest is hoping to complete the maintenance sometime in the next two weeks. Recreationists should anticipate heavy equipment in the area prior to the closure as crews will be making preparations ahead of the work. Forest crews will close the parking area in advance to make sure no vehicles are in the area before the equipment begins operating.

“We know this is an inconvenience, but we appreciate everyone’s cooperation as we try to take advantage of some dry weather to get these much-needed repairs underway,” said acting Jackson District Ranger Rob Hoelscher.
