Controlled Burn Above Ashland on Tuesday, May 10th
On Tuesday, May 10th the City of Ashland will conduct a controlled burn just below the White Rabbit Trailhead on City forestland. The 25 acre burn is for forest health and community wildfire protection. Smoke clearance was granted by the State of Oregon and smoke is predicted to move away from town during the day. Some lingering smoke may drift into town, especially toward the evening hours. Smoke sensitive residents along Ashland Creek are urged to close their windows during evening hours on Tuesday night.
The White Rabbit trailhead will be closed for the day due to burn traffic and hoses laid across trails. This includes the Alice in Wonderland trail, BTO, Red Queen, and Jabberwocky trails.
Burning will likely continue this week so check back for updates on closed roads and trails.
