Forest Fire Road and Trail Closures Are Lifted
LAKEVIEW, Ore. – All trails and roads closed on the Klamath Falls Ranger District of the Fremont-Winema National Forest during the Blanket Creek and North Pelican Fires are open.
“Because of the hazardous conditions created by these wildfires, it was imperative to restrict public access to those areas,” said Klamath District Ranger Heather Berg. “Some smoke or burning roots may still be visible, but we’re confident these hot spots will not threaten the fire perimeters. When traveling through recently burned areas, take great care to be aware of tree snags, debris, stump holes, and possibly flash flooding during heavy rains.”
Due to the Blanket Creek Fire, Trail 3703 was closed on September 24. Also, Forest Service Roads 3282, 3228, 3208 and 3134 had restricted access. The same day, in the North Pelican Fire area, Forest Service Roads 3519, 3500350, 3556, 3651, and 3659, as well as Trails 3709, 3710, and 3762 were closed.
This rescinds the following Closure Orders: 06-02-13-17-12, 06-02-13-17-13, and 06-02-13-17-14.
