On Thursday December 2nd, Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest Service will continue a controlled burn on behalf of the Ashland Forest Resiliency partnership. The late fall underburn is at high elevation and smoke is moving up and out of the valley. The controlled burning is along No Candies Trail, so please avoid the area due to traffic and smoke. Find alternative trail routes here and how to avoid smoke exposure at the Smokewise Ashland website. Check weather and smoke on the watershed camera.
