Loop Road is Open, visitors advised to use caution or delay plans for this weekend

(Lander, Wyoming) Despite the cold, wet weather, the Forest Service opened Louis Lake Road, or better known as Loop Road this morning. Even though the road is open, Barb Gustin with the Shoshone National Forest District Office in Lander said it’s not advised to go up. Gustin said it will be extremely wet and messy. But if you decide to make the trip, she also asks to use caution and stay out of the mud. Activities like “mud bogging” or driving through wet meadows could cause resource damage.
