Emigrant Wilderness THs during The Shutdown? on 10/14/2013 19:01:39 MDT Print View

Some friends and I are planning a trip to Emigrant Wilderness this weekend and are wondering about the situation at the Crabtree Meadows TH.

Has anybody been there during the govt shutdown? Gates open, scary signs, armed guards?

We have not been there during the shutdown, but we have a cabin nearby. There are certainly trailheads that you can access without much trouble: The ones on Clark Fork Road, for example, or Sonora or ST. Mary's Pass. And Leavitt MEadows, on the east side, is self-register for your permits

I have interest there too on 10/26-27. I guess I will make a call to the Pinecrest RS. Kennedy Meadows store and restaurant is a private company and I do not think they are being shutdown. Hike On!!
