Visitor’s Should Use Caution on Medicine Bow National Forest

Medicine Bow National Forest

A week’s worth of cool, rainy weather has produced wet, muddy conditions on the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests and Thunder Basin National Grassland (MBRTB). Visitors should be aware of how those conditions affect their travel as they venture out and make weekend plans.

Moisture levels vary widely across the MBRTB, with some areas seeing flash flooding warnings and corresponding recreation area closures. The Laramie Ranger District has currently closed Pine, Sugarloaf and Willow campgrounds due to high water levels of nearby watersheds. North Fork Campground is also being evaluated for possible closure.

As a whole, roads throughout the MBRTB are soft, wet and muddy prompting words of caution for visitors from Forest officials.

Deputy Forest Supervisor Carolyn Upton said you should know the weather forecast in advance and check with your local Ranger District for current road status. She added that visitors should also respect closures and use caution when approaching water crossings, Rain showers are expected over much of the MBRTB this weekend.
