Recent spring rains on top of heavy snow last October have led to unstable conditions on trails and roads in the Black Hills National Forest of western South Dakota and eastern Wyoming.
Forest engineer Dave Plummer says in a statement that most roads and trails are soft and not suitable for driving. But the Rapid City Journal reports that forest officials are seeing indications that people are ignoring conditions and causing unnecessary damage that could take years to repair.
Soil conditions are so bad around Cook Lake in western Wyoming's Crook County that the Forest Service has closed the entire recreation complex. Forest Supervisor Craig Bobzien says in a statement that there's an increased risk of landslides in the area.
