Muddy Mountain Road Closed for Winter


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Casper Field Office announced today that Muddy Mountain Road will be closed on Monday, Nov. 16, 2009 for the winter.

Muddy Mountain Road is the primary access route to the Muddy Mountain Environmental Education Area two campgrounds and numerous trails. Due to mud and snow, the road is unsafe in the winter for vehicular traffic. However, the Muddy Mountain area is open for snowmobile use on designated state trails.

The road is closed annually based on weather and road conditions and will be open again around June 1, 2010.

For more information call the BLM office at (307) 261-7600.



The BLM manages more land - 253 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
