CODY, Wyo. — The Washakie Ranger District of the Shoshone National Forest will close both the southern and northern ends of the Loop Road, FSR 300, to motorized travel on Monday, December 2nd., according to a press release from the Forest Service.

The gates at South Pass and the Worthen Meadow junction are scheduled to close for the season on Monday, December 2nd.

The gate near Bruce’s Parking Lot will remain open, pending winter weather, to allow for the harvest of Christmas trees; this gate will close when conditions inhibit safe travel.

The annual closure of the Loop Road, also known as Louis Lake Road, helps ensure resource damage in the area remains minimal.

Please contact the Washakie Ranger District at 307-332-5460 for additional information.
