Muddy Mountain Road Closes for Winter

Muddy Mountain Road will be closed for the winter season starting this Friday. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Casper Field Office will lock the gate at noon on December 1, 2006.

Muddy Mountain Road is the primary access route to the Muddy Mountain Environmental Education Area (EEA), 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 at the end of November and will be open again around June 1, 2007.

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