RIP River Road

Post by Mike » Sun Jul 30, 2017 10:49 am

The Snake River has taken out part of the embankment alongside the River Road and it looks like it may never be opened to auto traffic due to environmental concerns as reported in the Jackson Hole News and Guide.Two hundred feet of road has eroded or is in danger of collapse.

For me due to physical limitations on walking,the road was a great way to get away from the more crowded areas and in to a road and trail less area to explore usually open to those boating down the Snake,from the Bar B C Ranch on the south,to the north where elk would come down from the slopes of Signal Mountain to feed in the sage flats alongside groups of antelope and the access to the south/west bank of the Snake where Cattleman's Bridge once stood.

The road has always been rough,rocky,and rutted and it has damaged my truck on one occasion but I loved it for it's quiet seclusion

We found it a few years back and so only got to drive it once. We really enjoyed and it would be nice to have it back.
