(Fremont County, WY) – The Washakie Ranger District of the Shoshone National Forest announced Friday, May 28th, that they will partially open Louis Lake Road, FSR 300, at noon today. Louis Lake Road, known locally as the Loop Road, will be open from South Pass to Maxon Basin, which is located north of Louis Lake.

“We anticipate being able to open the northern end of the Loop Road from Bruce’s Parking Area to Worthen Meadow within the next week or so,” said District Ranger Steve Schacht. “The middle section of the Loop Road will likely stay closed a bit longer to allow the remaining snow to melt off.”


Caution is advised for all those traveling the motorized system on the Washakie Ranger District, as some snow and wet surfaces may remain in areas. Please heed all posted warning signs and assess conditions, using extra caution as you travel roads that go through potentially wet areas, such as meadows.
