Trail Information

Update 11/20/2017

Controlled Burn off Mt. Ashland Ski Road
Smoke may be visible from the I-5 freeway this morning when a controlled burn for 40 acres takes place off Old Highway 99 up the Mount Ashland Ski Road.  Professional teams with Lomakatsi Restoration Project will light test burn piles in the morning.  Smoke will be monitored closely due to the close proximity of I-5, Old 99 and the Ashland Ski Road.  If conditions continue to be favorable, the controlled burn will proceed.

Why we Burn?
Controlled burns under the right conditions reduce the risk of severe summer wildfires and dense smoke to protect our forests, water supply, economy, and community.

All roads and trails are open!  We are getting some good work complete in the watershed this fall to reduce the risk of wildfire. This will create short intermediate delays on the Lower Bull Gap Trail, Corps Camp Trail and East View Trail.

Thank you for your patience as we completed work to reduce the risk of severe wildfire in the watershed and to protect water quality, older forests, wildlife, people, property and quality of life.

NEW! The Ashland Forest Resiliency Partners created a webpage dedicated to providing the resources and information needed to protect your health during summer wildfires. The web page will tell you where to get air quality information and how to take action.
