(CNN) -- A 4.4-magnitude earthquake appeared to trigger a small landslide in Wyoming's Bridger-Teton National Forest on Saturday, an emergency management official said.

No injuries were reported and the quarter-mile-wide slide stopped short of the road, leaving only a trail at Ditch Creek affected, Rich Ochs, the emergency management coordinator for Teton County, told CNN.

The earthquake struck at 11:43 a.m. (1:43 p.m. ET) about 20 miles east-northeast of Jackson at a depth of 3.1 miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Jackie Skaggs of the National Park Service told CNN that the region has been rattled by other small earthquakes over the past few months.
