EarMountainTrail in Great Shape

I hiked to the top of Mount Wright today (09/11/2010). The trail has been worked over this summer. Some new tread put in and cairns rebuilt. I had no problem finding and following the trail except for the snow drifts near the summit. The forest is burned but the ground cover is coming back. Lots of flowers there this summer.

The Fool Creek Fire of 2007 burned the West Fork Teton area. The road past the Teton Pass Ski Area was closed on week days in 2009 to permit salvaging burned logs near the road. That logging is complete and the road is open once again. The road will not be plowed in winter past the ski area.

The West Fork Campground was burned in the 2007 fire and has not been reopened. I haven't heard if it will ever reopen. Closest campground with water is the Cave Mountain Campground.
