Due to heavy snowpack remaining on Sawtooth National Forest system roads, seasonal route closures have been extended on several areas of the Forest. Some roads and trails that would typically open on May 1 may have delayed openings. Here is a link to a news release about the extended closures: USDA Forest Service Alerts and Notices
Trail Creek Road is snow-free all the way to the locked gate near the end of the pavement. Blaine County Road and Bridge reports that they will work to open the pass once conditions are safe for crews to work in the area. Warm Springs Road is open to just beyond Frenchmen’s Hot Springs. Penny Lake is open.
If hiking or riding on singletrack trails, help keep them narrow. If passing short sections of snow, pass over on the snow. Going wide tramples plants, thereby widening the trail, or contributing to braided trail conditions. Turn around if you reach muddy conditions.
