Controlled Burn Planned for Bull Gap on Sunday, December 13th

On Sunday, December 13th a controlled burn is planned on public lands in the Bull Gap area between USFS 2060 and USFS 2080-200 spur. No roads or trails will be closed; however, Bull Gap Trail should be avoided because of smoke.  Ashland Forest Resiliency partners along with Rogue River-Siskiyou Mountain Ranger District will manage the controlled burn for increased community wildfire safety. The controlled burn is located high in the watershed and Bull Gap Trail passes through where crews will be lighting piles. We recommend avoiding Bull Gap and Corp Camp Trails. 

Earlier today, a controlled burn was completed along the Lower Red Queen Trail and Upper Bandersnatch for Ashland Parks & Recreation on city land. The Lower Red Queen Trail from Ashland Loop Road to BTI crossing is closed until Saturday, December 12th and Bandersnatch Trail is re-opened.

Potential Smoke Impact for Bull Gap 

  • Smoke could be visible from parts of Ashland, Interstate 5 and Tolman Creek neighborhoods.
  • There will be smoke around USFS 2060, USFS 2080-200 and Bull Gap Trail.
  • Due to potential smoke, avoid Bull Gap and Corp Camp Trails: No roads and trails are closed.
  • Smoke sensitive people should avoid areas closest to the controlled burn; if you smell smoke, stay indoors and keep windows closed.
