USFS Promotes Common Courtesy On Mountain Roads

Springtime in the Mountains around Sheridan is in full swing, and the U.S. Forest Service wants to remind outdoor adventurers to be courteous on mountain roadways.

Wilderness access is often available only through dirt roads, which become vulnerable in wet conditions. Cheri Jones, Recreation Staff for the Tongue River District, said this is true for both trucks and four-wheelers.

Puddles in the road aren't the only issue motorists should be ready to contend with. Jones said robust spring runoff can also create some tricky situations for motorists.

Finally, Jones reinforced motorists must stay on established pathways.
