ATV Access

“A lot of hunters appear to think that because they have an ATV and a hunting tag that gives them permission to ride wherever they want,” said Jay Pence, Forest Service Ranger in the Teton Basin Ranger District. “There are state regulations associated with fair chase and there are federal regulations restricting those ATVs to the designated route.”

The City of Pocatello is preparing for its annual closure of the gates to the City Creek area. From Nov. 16 through May 15, the City Creek area will be closed to motorized access.

This entails closing the motorized access gates at City Creek and Cusick Creek. These annual road and trail closures coincide with similar closures by the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.
