Due to cooler temperatures and shorter days, Teton Interagency Fire Officials are lifting fire restrictions in on the Bridger-Teton National Forest and in Grand Teton National Park.
Restrictions have also been lifted in Teton, Lincoln, and Sublette County.
Highway 89/191/287 is open between Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. The Grassy Lake Rd (Flagg-Ashton Road) is now open. All area and trail closures associated with the Berry Fire have been rescinded. While travel in the burned area is now allowed, visitors should be aware of the hazards that a recently burned area present.
Please use extra caution while traveling in the recently burned areas. Potential hazards include unstable dead trees (snags), burned-out stump holes, loose rocks and logs, heat and smoke. Off trail travel poses the most risk. Stick to trails when possible.
