City Burn Cancelled: Roads and Trails Open

UPDATE:  5/8/2018

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.

The City of Ashland is conducting a controlled burn that will close several trails near the White Rabbit Trailhead.  Ashland Loop Road is closed for two days at the top of Morton Street.  Smoke will be visible throughout Ashland and down the valley.
Trails Closed Include:
  • BTI, Bandersnatch, Red Queen, Alice in Wonderland, Gryphon, Jub Jub, Snark, Waterline and Jabberwocky. 
  Trails Closed
Check out alternative trails around Acid Castle Rocks, Oredson-Todd Woods or west side of Ashland Loop Road near Granite Swim Reservoir. 
Light smoke may affect nearby neighborhoods, especially in the evening hours. Residents sensitive to smoke should avoid smoke exposure by staying inside, closing windows, and
filtering indoor air.  Recreating outside in smoky conditions should be avoided.  See health recommendations at 

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