Area and Trail Closure Changes
Incident: Granite Fire Wildfire
The Area Closure for the Upper French Creek drainage which includes French Creek Trail #1595 from its intersection with Snowall Creek Trail #1560 and its intersection with the Paddy-Go-Easy Trail has been lifted. The trail closure for Klonaqua Lakes FS Trail #1563 remains in effect. Hikers near the fire area along French Creek Trail should be wary of hazardous conditions such as rolling rocks falling trees smoke and other fire-related hazards as fire still continues to burn in that area. Burned areas on steep slopes above the trail will have loose materials come down after rain storms and as burned trees fall. Please exercise caution in these areas. Smoke and even continuous burning should be expected until winter conditions fully extinguish this natural event.
