Know Before You Go: Is Your Favorite RRSNF Location Open and Accessible (Klondike Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - Mon, 09/17/2018 - 17:39
Southwest OR – The 2018 fire season has resulted in a number of emergency area and road closures across the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest. These closures were put in place for the health and safety of both the public and firefighting personnel, and often remain in place even after the flames are extinguished. Forest roads are often included in these closures, and while not all closures have security guards that prevent people from passing through, the RRSNF would like to remind people that these closed roads and areas are considered dangerous until they are assessed for post-fire safety concerns. Things like standing snags, fallen trees across roadways, and persistent fire traffic are also factors in keeping closures in place.The RRSNF is asking people to be aware: Know Before You Go. Many of the 2018 fires still have closure orders in place, all of which include roads that many Forest visitors are accustomed to using to access their favorite spots on the RRSNF. Questions...
