Carter Mountain Seasonal Closure Remains in Effect

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cody Field Office announced today that snow drifts and impassable roads have postponed the June 15 opening of Carter Mountain.

The BLM will notify the public as soon as conditions allow the seasonal winter closure to be lifted. The area remains open to foot and horseback travel.

Carter Mountain is closed annually from November 15 to June 15 to all motorized travel. This closure is meant to limit disturbance to wildlife and big game in crucial winter ranges.

Seasonal winter closures were lifted on April 30 in the Bald Ridge, Little Mountain and Twin Creek Trail areas.

For more information, please contact the Cody Field Office at 307-578-5900.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
