Forest Service Update

I wanted to pass on the latest update that was passed down to me this morning, an official Regional Closure to developed recreation sites until April 30th was put into place. Many of these sites have already been closed as of last weekend, but this Order makes the closure official and an actual tickatable offense to be within the closed sites. NOW, what I want to make clear is that trailheads & trails are still open under this Order; WE ARE STILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS and we aim to be a resource for the public as long as there isn’t crazy droves of humans and resource damage. If you need to seek out the Forest for some solitude and hiking away from the world, please do that, just be mindful to disperse yourselves and not travel in large groups. Here I am going to share a list of what is currently closed so that you may stay informed on what opportunities are still available on the District.

NOTE: All bathrooms are closed because our staff is not allowed to clean them due to the health & safety risks, so at many trailheads you can access the trails but amenities are limited.
