A high elevation burn is planned in the Ashland watershed for Tuesday, November 2nd. Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest (RRSNF) will manage the controlled burn off the USFS 2080 and 2080-200 roads on behalf of the Ashland Forest Resiliency project. Due to high elevation and distance from town, smoke is not expected to impact neighborhoods. Lower Bull Gap and Missing Links Trails will have smoke. Hikers or bikers should avoid these trails today. Please see alternative routes here.
Our Smokewise Ashland site has all the resources you need to stay healthy when smoke is in the air. Also, learn where AFR Partners will conduct burns in 2021-2022 on the controlled burn map.
