City Burn Cancelled: Light Smoke in Siskiyou Mountain Park

UPDATE 5/8/2018:  

CITY BURN CANCELLED today due to forecast for possible rain earlier in the day than expected, along with wind. We apologize for the false start, but we want to burn under the best conditions. Crews will check conditions again later this week. There is some smoke from yesterday's burn possible as they finish up. All trails and roads are open today.


Section of 2060 Ashland Loop Road briefly closed:  

  • 2060 road (Ashland Loop Road) between Caterpillar Crossing and Lamb Saddle will be closed from 10:00AM until mid-afternoon. 
Trails that could be affected by smoke are: 
  • Caterpillar, Lizard, top of Red Queen and Jabberwocky, White Rabbit near Ashland Loop Road, upper Mike Uhtoff, and eastern portion of Toothpick near Lamb Saddle. 
Light smoke may affect nearby neighborhoods, especially in the evening hours, including Greenmeadows area and upper Clay Street. 

Residents sensitive to smoke should avoid smoke exposure by staying inside, closing windows, and filtering indoor air.   See health recommendations at ashland.or.us/smoke. 

Thank you for your patience as we conduct controlled underburns this spring for community protection.
