Controlled Burning Planned for Wednesday, January 6th in the Panther Peak Area Above Talent and West Ashland

On Wednesday, January 6th, the Ashland Forest Resiliency Partners plan to do controlled burning in the Panther Peak area and up Wagner Creek Road. No trails or roads will be closed; however, the No Candies Trail could have some smoke impact and areas around upper Wager Creek Road. Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest crews and Lomakatsi Restoration Project will be on site to manage the controlled burning.   

Potential Smoke Impact 

  • Smoke will be visible from parts of west Ashland, Talent and from Interstate 5.

  • The controlled burning is located at high elevation and smoke impact is expected briefly near the controlled burn along the No Candies Trail during the day and the Wagner Creek area in the evening
