More property owners block Monkey Rock access

FREMONT COUNTY, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - UPDATE: The Fremont County Sheriff's Office says additional property owners have now lined up to completely close the "Monkey Rock" area to public use.   

All have now posted their properties as "No Trespassing" and most will be fencing their land to drive home the point.

The canal company that uses the water is also posting its canals as "No Trespassing." The canals are privately owned.

Anyone floating the river will need to use a public access point to both enter and exit the river.  

Additional information on rafting is available through the Caribou-Targhee National Forest
