Phelps Lake restroom repair will cause delays, trail closures Monday

JACKSON, Wyo. — Motorists are advised to expect temporary delays of up to 20 minutes along the Moose-Wilson Road near the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, June 15, as well as trail closures between the Preserve Center and Phelps Lake.

The Lake Creek, Woodland, and Aspen Ridge Trails will be closed, as well as the Phelps Lake Loop south of Huckleberry Point and south of the junction with the Boulder Ridge Trail, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday, June 15.

The temporary delays and closures will be in effect for health and safety purposes as a helicopter transports supplies and materials for repairs of the Phelps Lake Restroom. The restroom facility was damaged during the winter of 2018-19 and closed last summer.

The repairs are in partnership with the support of Jackson Hole Preserve Incorporated.

The public is encouraged to use alternative routes and visit other trails on Monday. The repair work is weather contingent, and could be delayed to the following day, Tuesday, June 16 should Monday’s weather prevent air transports.

The interpretive center will remain closed for the 2020 season because of limited staff due to COVID-19. The parking area and restroom are anticipated to be accessible for the summer season after the transport of supplies and materials for repairs at the Phelps Lake Restroom.
