This Forest Order is being enacted to best protect the safety of both the public and first responders. With many fires active in and around the Trinity Alps Wilderness Area, access to trailheads is severely limited, and recreation in the Wilderness Area may be unsafe as these fast-moving fires continue to burn. Tracking hikers in unsafe areas pulls much-needed aircraft away from firefighting efforts, and adds risk and exposure to first responders. Additionally, forest managers hope to limit the possibility of human-caused fires with this temporary full closure.

Specific fire-related closures are also in place on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest for both the McFarland Fire and the Monument Fire. For current fire information, please visit:
