BEST PRACTICES

  • PLAN AHEAD: Parking at trailheads is limited and popular parking areas fill quickly; be flexible and have an alternate plan. Call the Bridger-Teton National Forest (307.739.5500) for up-to-date information and recommended alternatives. 

  • KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Check the weather forecast, avalanche conditions & be prepared with the right equipment

  • LEAVE NO TRACE: Minimize human & animal waste in high-use winter recreation areas. Use a facility before you head out, or be prepared to pack it out. If you must, bury waste well away from travel routes and 200 yards from water sources.

  • RESPECT WILDLIFE: Review and respect these critical wildlife closures.Be alert and give wildlife plenty of space. Find a new route if you encounter a moose or other large animals on the trail. Keep your dog close, and comply with leash requirements. 

  • BE KIND: We all want to enjoy our time outdoors. A little kindness towards others goes a long way. Be friendly- say hi and offer thanks to those who are being responsible. Share the trail - think “we, not me”.
